Just had confirmation that my PRNC at HMS COLLINGWOOD has been cancelled just wanted to know if there was anyone else in the same boat.

You are not alone. PRNC has been cancelled since the lockdown.
So they have been cancelling lockdown for a few months now. I’m guessing my PRNC will be pushed quite far back with that backlog if they do them in order also my Raleigh date of 20th July will inevitably moved back as well?

You will just join as usual on the 20th without partaking in a PRNC.

I was hoping that wasn’t the case really as a PRNC seemed like quite a valuable experience towards preparing for Raleigh.
Personally, I can't see why that is? You'll know what the mobs about when you get there.
My honest opinion is I never understood why it was introduced.
As stated, my opinion.

It does seem like a waste of money that could be better spent elsewhere. If you have waited a year or two to join doing a 4 day course to make sure you know what your in for isn’t going to make much difference. Rather just go straight to Raleigh.

I may be mistaken but I thought the purpose of the PRNC was to check your physical fitness credentials before you start the course at Raleigh. It is no use to anyone if a recruit rocks up at Raleigh being unable to tie their bootlaces without getting puffed.

Also if I don’t get to complete my PRNC then what happens about getting my boots for Raleigh as they are meant to be issued if you pass the PRNC

This is most likely the case however the PRNC dates are usually only 4-8 weeks before Raleigh so that isn’t a great deal of time to dramatically change your fitness, and if someone turns up to the PRNC severely out of shape then they don’t deserve their entry date in the first place;)

Back last year sometime they trialed not having PRNC . I'm only guessing but I imagine Raleigh give you your boots at the start of your course.

We all managed!
As stated, personal opinion.
And most of us on here joined straight from school, so how did we cope??
I think it's a waste of money too, personally.

It'll be in the search facility ;) From memory it was brought in because of the poor state of fitness of new recruits resulting in a high failure rate. If @Ninja_Stoker is about he might be able to confirm or otherwise.

I've tried searching, and all I can find is... "I have PRNC soon and I'm p1ssing me pants worrying, can anybody help me?"

Therefore, my question remains extant.

PRNC w was brought in as a copy (sort of) of the bootie PRMC. It was meant to weed out those unfit or more likely to PVR, also gave the applicant an insight and prevent no shows.

The trial binning PRNC was to have some Phase 1 courses do PRNC and some not and see if the PVR rates were the same.

If there was no difference then PRNC could be binned and money saved, if the PVR rates of those who'd done PRNC was significantly less, then it would stay.

if the PVR rates were higher then it would have a severe looking at.

I don't know what the outcome was.

That was pretty much what I was thinking. But, I still think it's a waste of money that could be used elsewhere!

As stated, in my opinion.
