The wait

cash

Hi new poster, dont mind pisstakers as at this point this may sound like a stupid question, probably is. i will continue anyway. My question is i have gone through the rt test and and just waiting for my medical date. Been told i can blast out the interview and fitness test quickly. So my longwinded question is as a submariner weapons engineer (apparently there in short supply at the moment) how long do you think it will take to be offered a spot in basic training (provided i pass everything first time as intended) been told january by CIO but on here it looks more likely a longer wait. Cheers for any and all replys

I'd be inclined to follow the advice offered by a qualified careers adviser in your AFCO. January's certainly do-able.
 
I believe it's like a game trying to get in - your AFCO will probably have the power to get you in quicker if you show determination. Give them a call and see. They're there to help, so why not give them a bell? I have my PJFT tomorrow, and then I've done anything and it'll just be a wait :(

They won't knowingly lie to you, if its a shortage and they predict you can be in by january then you are probably looking at joining in january provided you pass everything and that :p

Nah my AFCO would have tried to get rid of me long ago if they had the chance probably :p the wait is frustrating but also fair. If someone for the same trade passed before you then they should enter service first; and for the navy they need people for certain trades so need to get them in quicker which again is fair enough. Still warrants a little moan now and then but its good to have a little moan now and then, your CA will do all they can for you so pestering won't help.

Ooh it's a huge game with no prior thought to the logistics of branch training on completion of phase 1 and just a laugh taking on too many of one branch and not enough of others as and when each AFCO chooses.

Bull.

The AFCO can only request an entry date once you complete selection. If you dawdle, people passing the test after you but completing selection faster, will be allocated a joining date ahead of you.

It pays to be a winner and complete selection as fast as possible, but we can't create jobs that don't exist.
