Is this a normal procedure

Hey guys, went to fill my Navy forms in today, then the lady asked me if i do any fitness i said i dont do any at the moment but i used to do boxing. the lady told me to exercise for mouth then go back and fill in the rest of the application form in, i mean i not mr universe but i am not and fat **** neither, i admit i need to get fitter is it normal for the navy office to have told me to come back a mouth after if the waiting list is already 22 months to join. thanks

if your waiting time is 22 months why didnt you have the common sense to just say yes knowing you have the time to get your fitness up to scratch?

Dunno. Probably just don't want to waste their time.

And this:

you have to pass to 1.5 mile run before they process your application
is that straight after you submit the application form
No, you have to fill in the form in the AFCO, then they set you off and you run to the 'secret' AFCO which is 1.5 miles away (don't worry they'll give you directions). Then, whilst you are running to the secret AFCO the normal one will telephone them to tell them you are on your way. Clearly you have a certain amount of time to get to the secret AFCO with your form - if you make it in time your application proceeds, if you don't you have to try again at a later date.

Hope this helps[/quote
Jimbo you need to sort out your APPSEC...

The visible section of the Careers Advisor structure in the Royal Navy is comprised of CA2s and CA3s and sometimes their civilian admin support.

A CA2 is an Office Manager type and the CA3 is his/her second in command. In practice, if you met a CA2 and a CA3 together, you would probably only know which was which by their name badges. Both of them will have spent yonks in the Royal Navy; you can't be a CA unless you have.

I'm just trying to verify that you have been given advice by someone who is properly authorised to give Careers Advice to candidates. I'm not sure you have.

A CA1 (Area Manager type) is someone you will never actually see, as they retire to secret apartments at the back of the Careers Office during the day, where they recline on chaise longues and are fed grapes by nubile young slave girls.

How does one get such a job?
