How quick can I get in the Navy?

I need to get away from civvie street fast, and get out of the country and see the world.

There's no doubting my commitment for a career within the RN, I would just like to know the waiting times from application to training start date for both Ratings and Officers.

Does it take longer for Potential Officers to get in or Ratings?

I know all this sounds 'bone' but I am fed up to the teeth with my work at the minute and seriously looking at RN. Just wondered if anyone has any good info about this? I'm going to head down to the AFCO as well, just want your opinion.

Thank you.

Send me a briefcase with 5000 crisp £50 notes and mum's the word. You'll never see me or your money again. I'll send you a brochure for the RN though... :wink: :grin:

i would say as a rating between 6 months and a year is about right.
as an officer i dont have a clue.

Go to old Portsmouth get pissed in the bar area and you will probably wake up on board a ship as a landlubber, oops sorry that was years ago. Best visit your recruiting office instead.

Why do you need to get out of the Country fast?
Just go to the recruiting office and tell them you`re a Gay Muslim.
Your feet wont touch the ground.

:lol:
Surely a dyslexic lesbian muslim? :wink:
 
I'm not in yet, but for what my opinion's worth I'd say that you're better off looking at what specialisation you actually want to do rather than what will get you in the quickest. You're committing yourself for at least 4 years, better to make sure it's something you enjoy.

I've got to wait over 2 years to get in to do what I want, I'd love to be able to get started quicker but I think it's worth the wait.

There's always the RNR in the meantime.
