Raleigh

Just a quick question (hopefully) as I can’t seem to find nor get an answer from speaking to anyone else.

Been interested in joining the RNR for some time and have done a fair bit of research on time commitment, training and what would be expected from me (and also the COVID restrictions we all have to go through at the moment) so I’m happy with that. However as I’m local to HMS Rally where initial training will take place, is there an option to go home on night’s?

Only reason I ask is that I am a (relatively) new parent and would like to help out at home as much as I can.

I anticipate it will be a no but only daft question is one not asked in my opinion.

BH, having been piped by @buffersduffer ,saunters gently in, takes a seat.....

Right, living in the area that you do, you will doubtless be joining HMS Vivid. All your introductory training will take place there, on a Wednesday evening. One you have passed all the task book requirements and completed two weekends (one at BRNC and one at Raleigh) your NE staff will arrange your confirmation course - two weeks at Raleigh, for which you will be expected to live on board.

For both RN and RNR the mess deck experience is part of training. Additionally, in these C-19 times, the DS will be less than chuffed with you potentially shuttling the virus between your home and an RN establishment.

I have heard a duty rumour that the RNR might be running a short course (short as in not the RN ten weeks, but longer than the RNR two weeks) over the summer. There is already an officer one - aimed at officers moving from URNU to RNR, amongst others - each summer at BRNC, so doubtless it will ape that in some way.

As ever, my response is to get yourself through the door first, and worry about the child-care in due course.

All together now..

Thanks for the information, very helpful! In truth no I haven’t got in contact with my unit as I haven’t started the application process as yet. Just getting as much information as I can before plunging into it.

I'd start with activating a portal request, it all takes a very long time.
