Engineer

Ex RAF

Newbie
My Son is 25 and a time served apprentice with several years experience working within the engineering dept. of St Andrews university.

He is keen to join the Navy but has heard mixed views about what the recruiters say and what will actually happen.

Can anyone enlighten me as to what he can really expect if he joins as a Marine engineer?

I served 22 years in the RAF as an enginner so im some what familiar with the recruiters bull.
 
A good mate of mine ex RAF C/T from Lossie was in exactly the same boat, his son joined as a Stoker (about 3 years ago now), already on his second ship.

If you were at Lossie on 15 Squadron you would know him :)

He may be in a position to join on the Accelerated Scheme:


Am also wondering about Direct Entry Petty Officer Technician (Marine Engineering) for him.

Requirements are:

GCSE or Equivalent: 2 min grade 4/C in Maths and Eng Lang

Formal academic engineering qualification at Level 4 (HNC or equivalent). 3 years experience of maintaining and fault diagnosis of electrical and/or mechanical systems (eg. propulsion systems, controls, diesel engines, water plant, power generation, refrigeration, hydraulics systems). Supervisory experience and line management over at least 2 engineering technicians.
