Physical Training Instructor Direct Entry

Evening everyone,

I recently noticed that the PTI trade has now been opened to direct entrants. I see it differs from the RAF in that the vetting course takes place after basic training. Is there a particular reason for this?

Are there many slots for the PTI role, as it’s still open to in service transfer? And as a direct entry applicant are you guaranteed the trade on competition of basic? Apologies for the questions, there isn’t a lot of information out there regarding the new direct entry route. Thanks!

All really good questions that would be best answered by the AFCO matey.

Give them a bell in the morning. The numbers are littered over this sight or try the website.

I think that there might be a problem with the current page for the Physical Training Specialisation Direct Entry on the RN website as, under the heading of Professional Training, it says:

"You’ll learn to adapt your medical knowledge for use in the maritime environment. Gain experience over a number of clinical areas, airway management, scrub and recovery. All to harness your skills ready for deployment. As you progress you will also extend your management role and take charge of the equipment and its maintenance, including gaining a qualification in sterilisation."

I think that it might need re-writing. Once re-written, it might be of more use to potential applicants.

Re the vetting course taking place after Basic, this could actually be a plus for candidates. There may be some recruits for whom there are other options besides PTI and getting Phase 1 under their belts means that, if they aren't suitable for PTI, there may be other options. How they cope with the fitness requirements of Phase 1 may well be a useful indicator of how suitable they will be for the PTI option.

I would clarify this with a Careers Advisor tomorrow.

Ring your local AFCO, check out where it is using the Find your nearest Armed Forces Careers Office (AFCO) section:
