Welcome to the site.

It's appreciated that it is difficult to access the official website due to it being offline for 4 weeks.

A brief precis is as follows:

Either call into your AFCO or ring 08456 07 55 55 to confirm eligibility with regard age, academic requirements, nationality, residency, financial status, police record, etc.

Complete an application form to sit the recruiting test (RT). Pass recruiting test.

RT guidance: http://www.navy-net.co.uk/Forums/viewtopic/t=15723.html

Complete an eyetest. Undergo medical examination.

Medical Guidance: http://www.navy-net.co.uk/Forums/viewtopic/t=11861.html

Once medical passed, take Pre Joining Fitness Test (PJFT): http://www.navy-net.co.uk/Forums/viewtopic/t=30260.html

Take Sift interview: http://www.navy-net.co.uk/Forums/viewtopic/t=14337.html Generic interview advice: http://www.navy-net.co.uk/Forums/viewtopic/t=16589.html

Attend Flying Aptitute Test (FATs) - Aircrew Only: http://www.navy-net.co.uk/Forums/viewtopic/t=11868.html

Attend Admiralty Interview Board (AIB): http://www.navy-net.co.uk/Forums/viewtopic/t=12887.html

If passed at a level high enough to merit selection, entry dates are allocated for entry in Jan, April & September.

Are we sitting comfortably children? Then I'll begin.

Firstly a man and a woman, who love each other deeply of course, turn the lights out and go to bed. Several minutes later a proto young Gentleman or Lady is conceived and after 9 months a sprog is born.
For the next few years the baby Officer to be does little but eat, burp, pee, poo, cry, sleep and receive ohs and ahs from all and sundry.
Then at 5 years of age the road to Officerdom begins when Mummy drops the young thruster to be off to school never to be seen or heard from apart from holidays and changes of school, until 16 with succesful exam results in hand and a place in 6th Form secured.
After a pat or two on the head and if money's no issue a new Mini, the hard work begins with studying for the nescessary qualifications for either a place at University or a direct entry to the RN, here's where you come in.... :arrow:




.... go to an AFCO and ask.

Don't forget learning useless management phrases "now lets all think outside the box" "we need a proactive approach to streamline our decision processes" etc

I don't need to do that. That's what Sergeant Majors are for.

Oh they have parents alright, but their state of wedlock could be called into question in many cases. :wink:
