Hope it's not too late, but the Direct Entry System details are out, and the system is essentially AFCO managed.
Entrants will have nothing to do with the RNR prior to AIB. After a pass at AIB they are Acting Sub Lt and go straight to the Wardroom.
Thanks for that Navalgazer.
Iâ€™m pleased to see that it is consistent with what Iâ€™ve been told so far by the AFCO. However, these few details appear to be the sum total of the information currently available on Direct Entry within the RNR! Any other queries I have posed to the AFCO have been met with â€˜Itâ€™s a new scheme - we donâ€™t know much about itâ€™, and â€œYouâ€™ll need to ask at your unitâ€. This would be fine if my unit had all the details, but they donâ€™t! I know that DEO was only introduced at the start of August, but what is the point of launching a new scheme before the AFCOs and RTUs have been given any details about it and why, 3 months after the launch, is there still a lack of information? :roll:
I now have my dates for AIB, so weâ€™ll see what happens after that!
Ah Firefawkes, it was ever thus. Someone in the good ideas club obvious put the plan out before doing the staffwork.
Good luck on your AIB, get the beers in when you pass.
