Hi All,

I am now at the final stages of my application to the RNR (General Entry Officer). I am at the point of Triage over the phone.

I have been told that I will be able to join up at my local RNR branch for Phase-0 training either way, prior to completing fitness test and then move on to Phase-1 training when I pass that.

My question is:
Is there anything I could be doing to prepare for my visits to my local branch prior to Phase-1 (other than physical preparation). For instance, are there any interviews? I see people post on here about “SIFT” but I’m not quite sure what that is.

Any advice appreciated

Have you engaged with your intended unit?

Decision on weather you get to join properly or not is not in the hands of the unit. SIFT is the interview carried out by your AFCO, usually face to face but I'd have no idea how they are managing it in ye times of ye Covid.

There are many changes afoot in the RNR, so whatever you are told will be different by the end of the week. Engage with your intended unit for best info.

As a potential officer I would hope that you can read all the badges of rank from LH to Cdr, at least, and know how to address each level appropriately.

Hope that gives gentle guidance.

It was my intended unit that told me I should be able to go in after Triage but I see your point about changes.
Ah, I originally passed SIFT on my initial application a couple of years ago to the regulars, perhaps this will not have expired yet, not sure.
Cheers for clearing that up anyway, I will get in touch with them then. I know of all the ranks, will get researching on addressing levels accordingly.
