Hi, I'm considering applying for the RNR, but have some questions first. I've sent off the information request on the official RN website and heard nothing. I joined the RN ten years ago when I was 16 and PVR'd (tw*t!) - too immature and didn't then understand that it takes some suffering to get through. I enjoyed the teamwork and outdoor training, and don't get that it my civilian role as an IT consultant. How long does the basic traning take place over? Can it be done in chunks if I take some holiday? What roles are available - would my IT skills be usable? I don't have any fixed service period in mind and am not planning on using the RNR to jumpstart re-joining the RN. This sounds a bit random, but any advise you could offer would be most appreciated. Thanks.
