Joining the RFA


I was recently turned down by the royal navy due to having 6/15 aided vision in my right eye I passed the RT test for CIS and passed the the interview. My career adviser told me I'm eligible for the RFA so I've applied for a seamanship apprentice I was just wondering what's the waiting time, what's the eyesight requirements and if I passed the rt test for the RN will I have to do it again? Any information will be helpful thanks.

Is there something wrong with the other Joining the RFA thread in the RFA forum, or did you just not see it?


Have you looked at the requirements for a Merchant Navy ENG1 as that is what is required for RFA and other Merchant Navy jobs
