Medical appeal success... CP4.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

  1. So yesterday i received a letter through saying my medical appeal had been a success :)!
    I was told the only issue was that i fall under CP4 colour vision so I have to choose another trade in oppose to ETWCIS and once i've decided i can carry on with the application process.

    I have contacted my CA but i've been told he's out of office so won't hear back for another few days, was just wondering if anybody could tell me which roles i would be eligible for with CP4 so I can have a look at other branches i might be interested in.

    Thanks :)
  2. Firstly, well done! That is great news! Secondly, I'm no good at branches or the like (in fact, I have no idea about a lot!) however, Ninja_Stoker may be able to help you :)

    Good effort!

    CP4 = ET(WE), ET(ME), MA, NN, Steward, Chef, Supply Chain, Writer, Royal Marines Commando or Musician.
  4. Thankyou for replies! That's great :)
  5. How can they not do cis but do we?
  6. Think it's because the comms side to ETWCIS requires a higher colour perception standard, therefore the CP will have to be higher in order to gain entry, but the ETWE on its own doesn't require a high CP grade.

    This might be wrong though, it's just my initial guess.

    Because CIS retained the Recruit Test score & medical standards for Warfare. The logic is that a person who fails ET(WE) CIS phase two training could transfer to a Warfare specialisation but to do so, they need to meet more stringent eyesight & colour perception standards than technicians.
  8. Ninja, i've sat the RT and done interview and obviously been offered an alternative role because of my colour vision standards, i've been told the waiting time is 14 months for ETWE, would it be shorter for me because i have already completed the RT and interview or would it still be this time frame regardless?
