  1. Hi all new to the forums :)

    Just wondering what the current waiting list is for engineering technicians (marine engineering) for both general service and the submarine service ?

    I am not wanting to use the waiting times as a way to decide which one to apply for, as from reading existing threads I am aware that those in doubt should apply for the surface fleet as it is easier to transfer from GS to SM rather than the other way around?

    Sorry if this has been recently asked, but I couldn't find any threads on it other than from 2013 where folk were saying 18 months, though I have been told there is currently a shortage of engineers in the RN?

    Many thanks :)

    MESM is less than 4 months (assuming there are no hold-ups during selection) ME GS is about 6 months test to entry. Ish.
