Hi, I desperately need to hear from anyone who has done their Phase 2 training at Sultan, Are you allowed to get your own place to go home to every night, or are you restricted to staying on base?
thanks!

I could and am prob wrong, but I'm sure you have to stay a VM in Sultan for the first few weeks, shacked up in the old Rodney, Hood or Nelson buildings.
 
I remember part 2 as still being quite strict. Surely you're still learning the whys and wherefores of the RN, apart from the intro to your chosen trade. Part 3 was more relaxed, but not that much.

I'm presuming the trainees live an "0800 to 1600" lifestyle, so it's not so much a way of life anymore, just a job.

I know, I know, times change..............

It looks like you're right Witsend, i finally found someone at the hive who could help me.

ouch 9 months?
well, hopefully he's gonna leave asap after training
so if they wanna send him away they only got less than a year to do it in
also, he's gonna ask for culdrose as his draft preference cos we hear they dont get deployed from there very often
something to do with the fact they only have merlins 'stead of harriers n lynxs

thats the plan, mr brownhatter hehe!
well, MY plan anyway
i spose it depends on him n how much he likes it in there
ive heard it becomes quite a lifestyle that people find difficult to give up

Anyone leaving after completing part two training will have not only wasted the RNs time but also their own.When part two training has been completed you are not fully trained. Training takes many months and to be of any use to a civilian employer you need to be at least a leading rate who has completed leading rates qualifying course.
So if he is going to leave best he does it now and stop taking a place in the RN which a more deserving man/woman could fill :evil:
