Correct Information?

#1
Hi all,

I know this has been done to death, but since the changes to the BRNC course, (now the 3 phases instead of 2) I just thought I would check to make sure I have the right info for my sift interview!

So I am applying for a warfare officer (surface):

Three 10 weeks phases:
· Militarisation - BLD: Basic Leadership Development, ABLE: Assessed Basic Leadership Exercise
· Marinisation - MLD: Maritime Leadership Development, MARL: Maritime Leadership,
· Initial Fleet Time (IFT) – (9 weeks, 1 week for passing out parade)

· 14 weeks at BRNC – (Initial Warfare Officer Foundation Course)
· 4 weeks at HMS Collingwood – (Warfare Officer’s Navigation Course)
· Specialist Fleet Time (SFT) – (6-9 months on a surface vessel gaining bridge experience)
· 4 months at HMS Collingwood – (Initial Warfare Officer Course)
· Join a ship? As Officer of Watch?

Just to re-iterate.. I'm not asking for people to tell me the phases because I managed to take the initiative and find it out myself!! (Unlike some people on here!) Just if this is up-to date, as I got different bits from different sources.

Any replies would be appreciated!

Well yeah otherwise I have no way of knowing whether the info is 100% accurate!
How about picking the phone up and asking your lovely careers adviser who will be able to tell you if the infomation is upto date. The conversation might go a little like this:

you - Hello CA, it's potential officer cadet Smith. How are the pigeons? (CA love pigeons apparently)
CA - Hello Smith, the pideons are great. what can I do for you today?
you - I just wanted to know if XYZ is current uptodate info
CA - Yes it is/no its not
you - Cheers guuvna

or is that asking to much of a potential officer cadet?
