RNP Aquaint - What to expect?

#1
Could anyone who has recently undertaken the Royal Navy Police aquaint course in Portsmouth give me a general idea of day to day activities on the course itself?

Cheers!

(Sorry if I've posted in the wrong forum...)

Random punt, but is your acquaint course a formal time-tabled event or a loan acquaint with the local service police unit?

If the former, I'd have thought the sponsor should be able to give a course programme. If the latter, I'd have thought the content would be dictated by the ongoing nefarious deeds committed by the Naval underworld and detected in the locality.

Reminds me of the time I was in Gib, the joss was horribly buggered by Charlie, etc., ....:)

I have been given the course content rather than the course programme, I'm not after detailed info, more just wondering if anyone had done the course and an idea of how the course content is put into action as such? the only idea I have been given is that it is a 12 hr work pattern, and that I will be tested on literary, briefs etc etc, but no general idea of a timetable as such. (Not yet obvs)

Cheers

Hopefully a computer-savvy service policeperson will perambulate upon this thread and impart some wisdom on the subject.

Good luck, evenin' all.

Literary? Do you mean literacy? You will go far in your chosen branch grasshopper...:)
I fondly recall giving my statement to the RPO at Collingwood after being caught riding my motorbike around the base naked.

He didn't appreciate me pointing out all his spelling and grammatical errors as he was writing out what I was saying.

At one point I actually thought he was writing like a spastic on purpose in order to make it look like I was stupid. For example I said: "Yes, I admit, I was probably a bit drunk" He simply wrote "I were drunk." After correcting him 3 or 4 more times and teaching him the difference between their, there and they're, I realised that he was just a thick ****.

On my subsequent 9 days 9s, I took the opportunity to piss in his kettle at every available opportunity, as did the scouse comms rating who was there for fighting.

One assumes the RNP acquaint course will involve an assessment of your ability to stab your oppos in the back, remove your spine, kiss the XO's arse and reject all social interaction with your mess mates.

That's more like it!
