Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. what times and scores do you need to get on your run and other physical tests to pass
     
  2. It really is open season today.

    I'm now convinced that someone leaves the doors of the Speshul Skool open every couple of weeks and they migrate to RR

    1.5 miles in 12 mins 30 secs on a 2 degree incline, 1 minute rest then another 1.5 miles under 10 mins 30 secs for Royal Marines, followed by targetting level 13 bleep test, 40-60 close-arm pull-ups, 60-80 knees together sit ups and 6 back-handed pull ups.

    For RN it depends on age, gender & specialisation.
     
  5. Alright, who's been leaving the door open and food lying around???

  7. you've got to run 5 miles in 6 minutes and do 1000 press ups 250 sit ups and swim the distance from where you are to the RN website where you can find a wealth of information to help you on your way.

    www.royalnavy.mod.uk incase you dont want to think what the website might be called
     
  8. Ninja, my bold; those are STC numbers, and not the RM ones. Might want to edit it.

    Whoops, good spot!

    Should read 40-60 close-arm press-ups. :oops:

    Before you know it the Booties will try to claim they're fitter than STC's.
     
  10. ITS IN THE FITNESS BOOKLET THEY GIVE YOU!! ARRRRRRRRRRRGH

    Sorry, really stressed today. But as above
     
  11. Hey guys,

    I've been told that waiting time for certain jobs are 24 months (e.g. WS). People have said to me that you may have to re-do your all tests before you go to Raleigh, like the RT, Medical and PJFT closer to the time?

    Is that true?

    Cheers :)
     
  12. You will have to redo the PJFT after 12 months of passing it. Yes for obvious reasons. However it shouldn't be hard to pass again as you will have plenty of time and no excuses to keep fit in preparation for joining.

    As for medical and RT, I'm not 100% I think RT last for 3 years afterwards and you don't have to redo a medical unless something happens to you during the waiting.

    You are correct the waiting time is 24 months for WS at the moment from passing the RT.

    However if you use the function called search this has been covered in many threads in the past and you can find out an answer or speak to your AFCO for a more official answer. They are open during the working week.
     
  13. Why not just join a branch that has a low waiting list like STC or Royal Marine?

    You know it makes sense.
     
  14. Thanks very much for the swift response :)

    I am also considering either being an AET or WE :)
     
  15. What's STC? (pardon my ignorance)
     
  16. Have a go with the search function, it might come up with some interesting results.

    STC=Splash Target Coxswain.

    If you are a fat sack don't even bother looking though, it is very physically and psychologically demanding.

    Edited to add:

    On last check, the waiting times for the branch, upon successful completion of all tests, was under 6 weeks once security clearance/vetting was passed. It may have changed in the past few days though.
     
  17. Just as much as a Marine then!! Thanks!
