Hi, I'm new to this and i know if I'd have read through all the threads regarding RFA i would probably find the answers to my questions. So apologies. I'm looking at joining the RFA as a deck rating. I spent a year with the RNR as an 'AB2', however left as it wasn't for me (that's not a jab at the RNR, they're great however at the time my civvi job wasn't very supportive ). I am wondering how long the entry/joining process takes for the RFA? After the 8 weeks initial training, what training aspects follow? I am also in the process of joining the TA, will this be a problem when joining the RFA? Any answers or advice will be much appreciated.
