For all of those whose offspring are in the joining up or just joined the Royal Navy stage. It will keep all queries together and make for an easier reference point for those seeking information.
Thanks for the information. My son has his medical in three weeks so keeping everything crossed for then.@MotivatingMum - my youngest passed recruitment test Feb 2016. He was originally wanting to go in the RM but after many months deliberating he decided against it. This slowed the process down but by September he had decided to go for WS. Triage call from nurse was in October and he had his medical in Jan. TMU for High BP but we knew it was nerves. 24 hr BP tape booked in March and results sent off to Capita. They passed him fit about 3-4 weeks later and he passed the PJFT this month.
My eldest passed his recruitment test in Sept 2016 and is going in as CIS. He had his medical which he passed in March. I think we hit the time when Capita were really slow. Within a few days of passing medical he had his fitness test and given an entry date about a week later. So similar stages for both of them. Hope this info helps.
