LOGISTICS BRANCH ILOC

Discussion in 'Joining Up - Royal Navy Recruiting' started by GJT59, Mar 14, 2007.

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. anybody on the forum have recent experience of the ILOC course???

    I am due to attend later this year...

    Good course/bad course???
     
  2. Where are you at the moment?

    Not a loggie myself, but I know a few. I'm assuming you have completed BRNC.

    Are you on Common Fleet Time? If so, a very good source of advice may be your Deputy Logs Officer who may have completed ILOC quite recently. If you are alongside, try getting in touch with Nelson or Drake Logs department as there will probably be one or two junior loggies working there. I'm also aware that there are some in the dockyard (SFM, Flag Lts, EAs etc).

    If you're still at BRNC, then I wouldn't worry too much about ILOC just yet - you still have the joys of BRNC, IST and CFT to come :wink:
     
  3. Logistics, ensuring the right item is in the right place at the right time with the minimum of fuss and cost..
     
  4. I am in the RAF at present.....!!!
     
  5. Ah, OK.

    In that case, should be easier for you, since you will have access to the MOD Intranet.

    May also be an idea to look up the Joint Service Logs School website and call the staff - they should be very happy for you to show an interest prior to joining. Also, ask them if you can speak to former ILOC students - they may be able to give you a list; I shouldn't think they'll have an issue with this.
     
  6. ILOC is changing quite significantly at the moment (from the JSOC of the past) - worth ringing the DMLS (Defence Maritime Logsitstics School) in HMS RALEIGH or looking on the MODnet for the OC of the Logs Command School - addresses start DCLPA. ILOC is a great foundation course and is designed to fit you to be a DLO at sea in the first phase and a DLO staff officer in the second. It lasts 16 weeks and can be quite challenging. The staff at the School are first class tho' and very happy to help out.

  8. Thanks guys!

    I am mid-way through the transfer process and awaiting a start date to change uniforms...

    My preference is to so submariner straight out of training - is this realistic? I have 7 years experience in the RAF so am not 'brand new' (though learning has been slow to take place!)

  11. If you have a preference for submarines then it is likely they will receive you with open arms. Generally they look for two candidates from each course for go for boats and sometimes there is a shortage of volunteers and so the OIC of the Press Gang, er I mean Appointer, has to nab an unwilling volunteer.

    The school staff will discuss with you on arrival and the Appointer will visit your course about two thirds of the way through.

    Good luck.

  12. Hi guys,

    Thought it's about time to re-fresh this useful thread with new questions.
    So far from my understanding, ILOC consists of the following three stages:

    Phase 1
    - Learning about each department individually
    - Exam & 2-day assessment
    Phase 2
    - Specialist Fleet Time = SFT
    Phase 3
    - Assessment (includes Ex. Maritime Fortitude)

    Could anyone expand on the following please:
    - What exact modules are run, per phase?
    - Assessment details / Ex. names, etc.
    - What's the duration of each phase?
    - How many times per year this course is run?
    - Are any of the following courses included in ILOC: Junior Officer's Course; Divisional Officer's Course; Tour & Broadening?

    As always, any insight is highly appreciated.
    (P.S. if I've missed existing replies regarding this topic - could you please share a link in your reply)
