Set to go to Raleigh very soon and I was thinking of changing my branch, could I possibly change it at Raleigh or am I screwed
 
Your AFCO will already have told you that changing branch at Raleigh is a no go. I have seen it happen on extremely rare occasions and when the overriding need of the Service dictated that it was possible. Changing branch at Raleigh is not guaranteed or a right. If you want to change branches do it before you get to Raleigh and join the branch you want from day one. You absolutely must speak to your careers adviser before you join.

I’m set to join this week!!!! Will my date be set back if I change branch?
 
I have no idea if your date will be delayed. You need to contact your careers adviser as soon as you can if you feel that you are joining the wrong branch. Better to join the branch you want a little later than to be stuck in one you don’t want. Again, branch changing at Raleigh is not a right or guarantee. The needs of the Service will always come first.

Yes, almost certainly. Entry dates at Raleigh are predicated on follow on Phase 2 training courses. However don't let that stop you talking to the AFCO soonest. As has been said, there is a procedure for branch transfers, but it isn't a right and requests are also refused. Do you really want to join to do a job you don't like?

Go on, what are you joining as? Was it the short lead time to join that swayed you and now you've read up on it a bit more..?

CIS I never joined because of the short time I’m still interested in it it’s just I can’t find any personal experience with the role which I can read up on.

I like to find out things for myself. Maybe it's my age and I don't get many new exciting things happen?

If you use second hand dits and It was like this.. Honest. That can lead to things like overconfidence or turbo wobbly leg syndrome.

I remember when I did my first sea survival course, down at 'Smokey Joes' on the Island. The older class told me the jump is about '30 feet high'! Me being a spotty 16 year old thought, shit! I am going to safeguard die. So my bum was giving it 50p 5p for weeks in the lead up to it.

I get there and it is barely 2m. My bum relaxes and I jump. No dramas.

The lesson, you can use all the good buzzwords like failure to prepare etc.. I like to use the words I say to Officers,: A little bit of knowledge is dangerous. Suck it and see, you might like it.

@smpsjs I am certain there is stuff on this forum about CIS but as I understand it the very nature of the job makes it an unsuitable topic for an open public discussion.

I don’t think joining without being sure of your job choice is wise . Even if you delay your entry in the end you may be glad ?
