Hello guys. I'm currently serving within the Royal Navy as a seamanship specialist. I'm looking for ways to broaden my horizons and I'm interested in the lofty goal of UKSF. However, I realise this is a fairy unrealistic goal what with the less than 10% pass rate and my lack of green skills. This brings me to my question, can anyone recommend an avenue I could go down to at least improve my green skills? I've heard 148 battery could be a good choice and not to underestimate their own selection process. Can anyone provide more information on this or other suggestions you may have. Many thanks and I much appreciate any replies.

It's probably worth digging out the relevant reference and having a good old read about the subject (2016DIN07-64).

All RN personnel undergo AACC prior to UKSF selection nowadays.

Can't say anymore unfortunately. NAAFI Cosmic, innit.

Thanks for the fast reply, appreciate it. Would there be any point in contacting yourself through a secure means or will I find the same information in the DIN?

I take it that's not your real name? Talking about SF possibilities?

Security is not a dirty word Blackadder :)
 
Gen - speak to your Career Manager.

There is a massive push on recruitment for UKSF, and the process is significantly more transparent and easier for Naval Service applicants.

You can go on the UKSF pages on DII which gives an outline, and the first, very simple step, is to fill in an application form.
 
Oh, and green skills. I speak from personal experience: if you've got the aptitude to crack on when you want to wrap, they'll send you on courses needed to learn your green skills.

Thanks for the Advice Alfred. I've heard there's a big push and that most DO'S have been briefed as such. What makes things more transparent for Naval Service applicants?

I'll take a look through the pages tomorrow and start filling out the application forms.

So if you turn up and show potential they'll get you on the relevant courses? That's one of the major disadvantages i see myself with and what I see echoed in forum posts, the fact that matelots aren't soldiers. Cheers

You're spot-on with regard matelots lacking fieldcraft skills, hence the AACC requirement. More latterly, sailors have undergone more by way of militarisation training prior to marinisation, then branch specific training...but even then, let's be honest, matelots seldom 'soldier'.

Correspondingly, there are numerically few (former RN) UKSF personnel in the SAS/SBS tier one cadre. I've never met one or processed an RN SF re-entrant. Met loads of bullshitters though.

Cheers Ninja. I'll check out the relevant DIN'S and speak with my DO. Hopefully get myself on an AACC and then go from there. I can imagine it will be a long, sometimes tedious process playing the waiting game but time is on my side and in my eyes extra time = more preparation.

I can imagine the numbers are low with a 10% pass rate and very few matelots actually going for it. Hopefully I can be the exception to the rule and I imagine the process will be a bit of an eye opener whether successful or not.

Had a really interesting brief (recruitment incentive) by a Captain in the SRR. If I remember rightly the statistic for RN personnel joining them was 5% I believe.

Really interesting stuff though. Good luck.
