Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Hi, I had my interview today and passed. I have been advised by my CO to go for communications technician instead of warfare specialist because my RT score was high. Is anyone a CT how do they find it and what's the waiting time. Thanks mike
     
  2. As far as I know the waiting time at the moment is 18-24 months (from the day you take your RT)
     
  3. It's 18 months.
     
  4. I've just had a phone call from the afco saying that communications tech is a no go because they're going to stop the intake. So I've opted for weopons engineer, or aet what's the waiting time for these thanks
     
  5. Why not ask the AFCO and don't let a shorter waiting time influence your decision.
     
  6. Why didn't you ask the AFCO when they rang you?
     
  7. I'll give them a call now thanks
     
  8. We wait with bated breath!!!!!!

    What's the latest?

    I've just had a phonecall querying this and I'm happy to put people correct on this.

    I can say that it is categorically untrue. The CT Specialisation is still actively recruiting both direct entry and (albeit, extremely limited) sideways entry. There are no plans to limit the recruitment of Direct Entry AB(CT)'s.

    As always, I am more than happy to answer questions on the CT Specialisation via PM if needs be however I will a) not answer anything that is Restricted or above and b) not answer questions where you can find the answers very easily if you use the search function!
     
  11. Is this miscommunication between departments, or AFCO's taking recruitment policy into their own hands?

    Anyway, I'm happy recruitment hasn't stopped...I had sudden visages of receiving a brown letter, but instead of it telling me when I do start, it was telling me that I wasn't going to start!

    Also, the_matelot, I PM'd you!

    Blue,

    I did receive your PM however....

    Your question will be easily answered if you look at the CT thread in the newbies section. Don't be lazy!
