    Is it possible to do my medical, fitness test and PRNC in a 2 month period?
    I got told i should be in Raleigh in June but every process seems to take a while and this looks very unlikely to me. I have my 2nd medical on the 14th of april as my urine test was too high in protein the first time.

    If all goes smoothly is June still realistic?

    if it matters im going in as Marine Engineering Submariner

  2. Yes. It is still possible.
  3. Just a unrelated question, when did you apply and have your interview?

    I reckon Drakey's must've been about 30 years back, probably more.

  6. Even for recruiting trades, is it still slow?

    I have my interview tomorrow, and have been told by the AFCO that it would be quite a rapid process.

    The only things that slow the applicant down are the medical - particularly if the individual does not read the appointment letter and take copies of any medical notes relating to any condition declared on the medical questionnaire to the initial appointment or if the candidate doesn't take the PJFT immediately upon receipt of the PJFT letter. Very often we get duffers who don't even start their fitness preps until they receive the PJFT letter & then want the full 28 days to take it or fail it, or request more time.

    Applications can quite reasonably be completed in two months with a bit of prior planning and a pro-active approach. Problem is that PRNCs can be fully booked several weeks in advance & you must successfully complete a PRNC prior to commencing Initial Naval Training.

    yeah rapid compared to others ... i got told around 7 months, i have been proactive but there are times when you cant do anything and your waiting for an email to get a date its quite fruatrating at times not knowing what is happening.

    Some branches recruit very few people each training year. CTs might have only 36 through where as AETs could be a couple of hundred. NNs, qualified and student, would probably be less than 10 a year.
