Hi all

Is anyone able to tell us in detail the training pipeline for the warfare officers. i have looked on the navy website and it says what you have to do all the way up untill the end of the first 28 weeks at BRNC, but i can't seem to find what goes on after that.

Any help is extremely gratefully recieved.

Thanks
DM

Perhaps one of the reasons why I have only 8 (now 9) posts to my name is because I try to find the answers to my questions, instead of asking questions that have already been answered?
Just a thought.

This is based on my own notes:

IOT - 2 x 14 weeks at BRNC
IWO(F)C - a further 14 weeks at BRNC (Some info on the BRNC section of the RN website)
SFT - Specialist Fleet Time, 6-9 months, focus on bridgemanship
IWOC - 14 weeks at Collingwood + 2 Week NWC assessment
OOW/OOD - first job, this will be approx 2.5 years in due to breaks between terms and holdovers.

How soon in you look at doing further training and sub-specialisations depends on what route within Warfare you want to take.

I think the pipeline is very small. This is to stop us having fat officers at the start of their career. However closer you are to PWO Course the pipe gets wider to accept the more <cough> fuller gentleman /<cough>. But strangely gets thinner towards the end of course to catch out those tubby ones. Now the training pipeline for WAFU's has to be seen as it is mostly mirrored.

Hope that helps.
