Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

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

  2. Most, if not all branches are short.

    Not entirely correct when viewed as manning requirements versus trained strength.

    You should not even give a passing consideration to applying for a job because it means you can join sooner. You should choose your job based on what suits you best because you will be stuck with it for your career.

    In order to manage realistic expectations, it's probably easier to tell you the trades with waiting times currently in excess of 12 months: Medical assistant, Aircraft Handler, Seaman Specialist, Diver, Dental Surgery Assistant, Student Nurse, Hydrography/Meteorology trades & Survival Equipment.
