Slight Hearing problem - Medical Assesment

#1
Okay so I have a slight hearing loss in my left ear, but like it doesn’t effect me in any way and people don’t even realise till I tell them...do all roles in the navy have the same hearing standards? I wanna be a Weapons engineer and I dunno if they have the same Standards as the rest I don’t know. If someone could let me know how it works that would be great. Cheers

There is a minimum standard for entry. There is also a minimum standard for a very small group of specialisations. This will no doubt become apparent during the medical process. I don't think WE requires the same clarity of hearing as does sonar operator for example.

Depends on where you work. WESM SWS for example may do panel watchkeeping on Navigation or Launcher/Fire Control systems. Its a good idea to be able to hear the annoying alarm. It also helps if you are not colour blind so that you can distinguish between Green (good) and Red (bad) indications.

You need to be at least H2:H2 (ie BOTH ears) and hearing is tested and graded at the RN Medical as follows:
