transfering from regular RN to RNR?

Discussion in 'Royal Naval Reserve (RNR)' started by duggers20, Jun 29, 2009.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

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

  1. Hey all, i'm currently in the full time mob, just wonderig would I be able to transfer over the RNR without having to go through all the tests again?

  2. I believe so, talk to your local RNR unit before you leave the regular service. It's normal to keep your current rate, pay grade and service number, I've seen this happen a few times.
  3. Yes, you need to apply to transfer at least twelve weeks before your TX date and everything transfers across. The tx medical constitutes an entry medical and your fitness test carries forward. There is a JPA form for it but I don't recall offhand what it is.

    Get in touch with the recruiting officer at your nearest unit to discuss branch or specialisation.
  4. Service number, yes. Rate and seniority may depend on what the current branch is compared to the branch being joined.
  5. Note, the above assumes that you've reached the trained strength and that you've finished your return of service. If you're being discharged SHORE or SNLR then it's unlikely that you'd be permitted to join the RNR, particularly as you appear to already have been a re-entrant.
  6. I believe, but please don't quote me on this, that if you cam out within the last 12 months then you can avoid medical, aptitude, PJFT.
  7. simaler question am currently waiting to for my joinin date for the royal navy but its just gone up to two years,
    so my ca mentioned to me about going in the rnr.

    so my question is if i go in rnr will it affect me goin in the full navy

    Nope, not at all- it also means your Security Clearance, Medical, Interview etc., remain valid, so it's definitely a good plan for those with a wait over 12 months.
  9. Empirical evidence suggests that the ease with which people transfer across very depends on whose desk it lands on in 'the 'MoD', or wherever these things seem to disappear off to. Some people seem to go across with ease, while others have their paperwork go into a black hole.

    Ref the JPA form, I understand from a recent transferee that only applies to transfers between the regular forces.
  10. ninja once av had me security checks cleared am going to apply for rnr then, but when its time for me to switch over to the full navy whats the procedure?
