Hi all,
I am currently a cadet deck officer with the Merchant Navy at present. Once I qualify I want to join the RN as a warfare officer.

Has anyone any experience of this but the other way around? Also would there be any allowances made for my past experience and qualifications?

Thank you in advance
Possibly, not probably not.

Presuming you qualify as a II/1 OOW, then you might have to spend as long on SFT(X), but everything else is about learning about the Royal Navy, not just on being an STCW compliant OOW.
