Once security clearance is approved , how long did it take for your afco to give you a start date ?

About 4/5 months for me but that was a couple years ago and they've cut back on the intakes recently too. What trade?

MA ( submariner ) . I know ive gotta wait 18 month but its been 12 now and I have just received a letter saying clearance is approved I was just wondering when my afco will send out my start date so I can start planning ahead for when I do eventually start .

Should've said, I don't know when I got my security clearance was granted but my waiting time was spot on with what was said on here.

I haven't. I've only just finished week 3 so still a proper nozzer and it's been a good crack so far. Just put 100% in and the staff are happy enough.

Well MA's a very long wait I know that much but seeing as your submariner you'll jump the queue a bit. They gave me about 3/4 months notice when I got my date. I don't know if that's a standard length of notice. In the meantime get yourself as much prepared for Raleigh as you possibly can. Fitness, Kit and get to know your ranks.

Also, you could have a look at the "When do you go to HMS Raleigh?" thread and see how much notice those people are getting.

Just a thought.

Running around HMS Raleigh at o' fcuk a clock bollock naked in the freezing cold then getting a dunking in some bloody water tank whilst your training team stands above you p1ssing on your heads is not fun. It's fcuking cold, that's what it is. Good effort so far Zoid, stick at it mate. :p
