Hi guys Was wondering if anybody could help me out with this one. I'm an ex seaman specialist from the RN trying to join the RFA as an AB1B. I've filled in an online application and sent across my EDH, ST and various other certs. I have just heard back today from the Jago Rd office that because I haven't served on a merchant vessel with the last 3 years that I cannot be considered for a position as an AB1B. However I also cannot be considered to go in as SG2 as I've already had some Naval training. I find it very strange that somebody from say maersk could join but someone with 23 years of seamanship experience including RAS, towing, boat ops, harbour stations and god knows what else can't. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.
