Quick Q. What does PCT stand for? (In terms of Navy Careers)

Discussion in 'Joining Up - Royal Navy Recruiting' started by spizer_00, Dec 13, 2008.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Just came across it in the forum somewhere, and wondered what it was? Thanks.
     
  2. Until one of the resident Careers Advisors gets here mate, I can only guess at Provisional Communications Technician.

    PCT = Probationary Communications Technician i.e. a CT under training

    In my day it was 'Pre Commissioning Training'.

    That rings a bell , and you may well be correct,
    but isn't it nice to see our old acronyms being recycled.

  6. Before that it was PJT - Pre Joining Training
     
  7. Actually I said "Before that ..." but thinking about it, I don't know which came first.
     
  8. It's allright tufty, no-ones going to pull you up? So because of that i will- dum ass
     
  9. We had a couple PCT's when I was in. Didn't realise they still had them. Just thought became CT's. Do they still not have a branch badge when a PCT??
     
  10. Do CT's have to score the highest in their RT nowadays?
     
  11. The Matelot is better placed to advise on this than I, but I'm pretty sure that PCT's are given a branch badge on successful completion of Raleigh, although am happy to stand corrected.

    As for RT scores, I believe that the highest cut off is for CT, but as I'm not a recruiter, I couldn't be certain.
     
  12. Nice one squirrel
     
  13. They never used to receive a branch badge as a PCT but then so many things have changed they probably do now I don't doubt
     
  14. Re: Quick Q. What does PCT stand for? (In terms of Navy Care

    It's not an acronym.
     

  15. isn't it pic of a dick
     
  16. Sorry, but these days it's probably Politically Correct Tosser or similar!
     
  17. Re: Quick Q. What does PCT stand for? (In terms of Navy Care

    Sorry, I've missed your point there.

    Why?

    PCT is no longer used as a branch title, it's just CT this week.

    CT's do indeed require the highest Reasoning part score & overall highest Recruiting Test score..
