Info/Waiting Time for ME?

Hey Everyone,

I passed my PJFT on the 29/12/2018, I applied for Advance apprenticeship in Marine Engineering, What sort of waiting time would I be expecting?
Would it be worth me requesting just to proceed into Marine Engineering and not on the Advanced Apprenticeship...I just really want to get in ahahah

I have tried calling my careers office just to chase it up but just came back with that they are still waiting for any information. Odd that I haven't heard anything in over two months.
Also, If I have to wait 4-8 months until joining, do I have to re-do the PJFT?



Hello PaddyMcpadington!

I applied for Marine Engineering Technician in November last year, and I can say (thankfully) that I have a date for Raleigh already, having flown through all of the stages I will be heading down there in July.

This having been said, I imagine the advanced apprenticeship will have a different waiting time of some sorts as it will yield a different structure/result. (Please, anyone correct me if I am wrong).

I was urged at all stages by my AFCO to keep in contact and ask any questions that I may have, so I can only stress to you that you do the same!

Feel free to PM me if you would like to ask any questions about my joining process.

Good luck!
Hi guys,

Wìth the accelerated apprenticeship scheme there is only one intake of 24 per year, so waiting times are longer if you meet the short list. I applied in November of 2017 and got my start date around march 2018 with a start date of November 2018.

Good luck with the application.
