ETWE or WS?

Discussion in 'Joining Up - Royal Navy Recruiting' started by Johndoe, Jun 15, 2015.

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. I would definitely like to work on weapons but I heard that warfare specialists work with small arms more, anyhow - what would you recommend? Considering that I want to work with weapons and tech.

    Also if you have the time, pros and cons of both roles?

    Thanks

    It depends whether you want to mainly fire the things and break them or whether you want to occasionally shoot them and fix them. The latter option (WE) gives you wide-ranging transferable technical qualifications, the first option (WS) doesn't and you have to bear in mind we don't fire guns on a daily basis, so you will find yourself otherwise employed when not at action stations.
     
  3. Thanks! Seems like I'd rather go ETWE then, especially with the transferable qualifications.

    The more technical the job, the higher the recruiting test score required to join. WE is about half the waiting time to join when compared to WS.

    The tip is revise for the recruiting test - practice against the clock.

    Good luck.
