How long is the Standard Initial Training Period (SITP) for ETME's ?
Does it start from the beginning of Basic at Raleigh and when does it end ?

Thanks,is branch training HMS Sultan ?.It's my son that there just now so I'm a bit vague on it all.
Branch training for ET(ME) commences at HMS Sultan.

It is quite complex as it depends on the branch and the phases of training until they reach operational standard & are no longer in training.

Basically an ET(ME) must complete Initial Naval Training (10 weeks) & Branch Training (16 weeks) then complete 30 months Return of Service before they can submit 12 months notice to quit, at the earliest opportunity.
