I just got a provisional offer of employment for Deckie. I'm 44 and ex Army. I think there was over 250 applicants for this course, they selected 90 for interview for 24 places on 2 courses + some reserves.
So by my (bad) maths, that's about a 1 in 3 chance of getting an interview and a 1 in 3 chance of getting a job mate. Have a care though, regardless of your naval experience, they will expect you to have swotted-up on the RFA on the interview. Go to TOOTP theres loads of good info there (it got me through) and good luck :wink:
Oh, if you have recent seatime then you may be able to go in as a qualified rating, so it might be a little easier.
