Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Hello,

    I'm currently waiting for a starting date. Does anyone know how long this can roughly take?

  2. Hi mate, may i suggest searching? It has been covered a million and one times. But for your benifit:

    It varies on branch, AFCO & lots of other things. Was only 2 days after i passed my PJFT that i got my date. But i know a guy thats still waiting.

    Hope you get your date soon mate.

    If you are joining as an Aircraft Handler, you'll be notified about 9 months ahead of an entry date, at about 19 months after passing your first PJFT.

    If joining as an ET(MESM), you'll be notified about 1 month ahead of an entry date, at about a week or two after passing your PJFT.

    The other 50-odd branches will be somewhere inbetween. Best bet is to speak to your AFCO.

    Good luck.

    It depends what the estimated wait was when you first applied & whether that changed between passing the recruit test and passing the PJFT. Not 100% sure but off the top of my head, assuming there are no hold-ups along the way, I think it's about 13 months test to entry at present.

    Your AFCO are best placed to advise as they know your individual circumstances.
  7. OK thank you very much
