Hms Raleigh submarine school


Hi all, going for my interview and I need something clearing up..
I'll be going to hms raleighs submarine school , but will I be doing my specialist training there ?
What will I be doing in faslane ?
I'm not going to answer those questions for you as Polto and WreckerL are already spoon feeding you. Best of luck with your interview but do not expect others to do your homework as you will need to display an ability to look after yourself and have some knowledge about what you are letting yourself in for without being dependent on others.
I've been searching all around the Internet, the navy website tells me one thing and the people on the forums tell me another. I'm confused to say the least
Not sure what more you need to have the info, what you do with it is now up to you. Maybe you could say to the interviewer that the website could be clearer...?
Last response from moi and repeating what I and Polto have already said!

After Phase 1, Phase 2 is in the RNSMS at Raleigh for 19 weeks as I've already stated.
Then the 8 weeks SMQ in either Devonport (T Class) or Faslane (A & V classes) as Polto has already stated (SM2 re-union 4th of March Polto old bean?).

SMQ is controlled from Raleigh but not taught there.

Good luck.

The Astute-class is the largest, most advanced and most powerful attack submarine ever operated by the Royal Navy, combining world-leading sensors, design and weaponry in a versatile vessel. The submarines are nuclear-propelled and fuelled by a nuclear reactor powerful enough to supply a city the size of Southampton. Its advanced technology means the submarines will never need to be refuelled. They employ the latest technology such as the Sonar 2076 that detects the sound of enemy submarines using the largest number of hydrophones ever fitted to a submarine. Linked with powerful onboard electronics these provide the submarines with outstanding sensitivity. The Astute submarines are armed with the latest versions of Spearfish heavy-weight torpedoes and Tomahawk land-attack cruise missiles.
