  1. Hi my son is at Collingwood doing his phase 2 WS training, text me today to say he has the opportunity to do another 14wks training to become an Electronic Warfare Specialist. Have searched :? the RN careers etc but can not find any info on this.
    Can any shed any light?

    Cheers :?
  2. it's part of the warfare branch. He will be able to use various equipment that detects electronic emissions given off by missies, ships and aircraft etc. He must have recently been given a brief by the Chief Golly there who I know my first ship back in 97-99. Good bloke.your boy may not get any choice if the billet he goes into on board requires him to do the course. He may also express an interest. I believe the course is 12 weeks
