He's probably seen this, but just in case he hasn't:

He has but thanks for taking the trouble to point it out.

Just saw a RN video on you tube that some ratings are doing their training at Dartmouth. Do they get shipped their from Raleigh or start their directly?

There’s one Division (about 47 recruits I think) at the college at the moment, who pass out in August. There’s then another Division joining in September.

They travelled straight there, not via Raleigh.

There are usually two Officer training entries going through the college at the same time (Officers initial training is 29 weeks over 2 terms), but there wasn’t a New Entry in May because the staff that would’ve trained them were on standby as part of the COVID response plan, with the college being used as a control and coordination centre. As it wasn’t used there’s spare capacity in the training infrastructure until Jan (at which point the college will be back to having 2 Officer entries), and so the opportunity to bring in additional Ratings was taken.

After some confusion my son finally has a date for his NSRT, Tuesday 7th July.

He is 16 the following day so hoping it will be a good birthday present with a decent pass.

I think that it is about 6/7 weeks before the start date, Adonis.
