Joining up & Holiday

#1
Just a quick question about my application,

I will be attending a PRNC in October, and hopefully upon completion I will be starting HMS Raleigh in January.

Now, between October and January, will it affect my application if I left the country for more than 28 days? I have been invited to work for a Dive centre in Cyprus for a couple of months to fill in the gap between PRNC and Raleigh. I'm not sure if I have to stay in the UK for security reasons? possibly?

hopefully an AFCO can advise me correctly?

thanks!

Just be prepared for the fact that you may be asked to join earlier than expected. Of course you can probably turn it down.

I originally had a Jan join date, then September 11th kicked off and loads of people pussied out of joining up in case WW3 was on the horizon. As such my careers office phoned me up in a panic asking if I fancied joining in October instead. On getting to Raleigh, I discovered about a quarter of my entry were people who were originally meant to join in Jan the following year.

Someone sensible will be along shortly to properly answer your question.
