INT is an initiative that aims to co-locate initial rating and officer training at a single site and deliver a common 10 week course. The Navy Board has directed that this will be piloted in May 11 for rating entries and from Sep 11 for officer entries. The syllabus is being confirmed as this article is being written and will be CMS compliant and be as common as possible between the streams. On completion of INT, ratings will proceed to Phase 2 training and officers will proceed to Phase 1B training at BRNC.
The INT concept was derived with the generic concept of co-location – the concept does not dictate which training establishment training will ultimately be delivered at. This decision rests with the Navy Board and is subject to further workstrands.
Hold your horses there chief. There is no reason our resident belmet can't simply sit on the side with a warm cup of bovril and a snood whilst the non-fearers do that which is asked. We shouldn't make the kids do scary evolutions, it's not ******* on.
