Hi everyone. I'm currently preparing for my SIFT interview (although, it appears to be called a Career Discussion now). Can anyone assist with a detailed chronology of the training pipeline (Post AIB) for an RNR Young Officer? I am aware there have been changes over the years. Having spent hours searching this site & google my understanding is as follows (but i'd be grateful if anyone can point out any mistakes, or add some meat to the bones): On successful completion of AIB & Vetting a young officer will assume the rank of Officer Cadet. They will then begin INT1A (Core Maritime Skills), which is similar for both ratings and officers. OC's will have 12 months to complete INT1A. During this phase you will learn things such as how to live in a mess deck, parade training, weapons handling, general fitness, general naval knowledge, how to look after your uniform and damage control. OC's will be required to attend two training weekends. Militarisation at HMS RALEIGH & Marinisation at BRNC. (If anyone could offer an insight into what these two weekends entail, I'd be grateful). Upon Completion of the above, OC's will move on to INT1B. The OC's will have 12 months to complete this module. They will be required to attend a Pre-BRNC Assessment Weekend at HMS RALEIGH. Again, if anyone could offer an insight into what this entails, I'd be grateful. Should the OC pass the pre-assessment weekend, they will assume the rank of Midshipman (non commissioned). Successful OC's will attend BRNC for a two week confirmation course. I'd be grateful if anyone could shed some light on the training schedule at BRNC for this two week course. My understanding is it includes Command, Management & Leadership training & a 72 hour exercise on Dartmoor. Should the Midshipman pass the confirmation course, they will then return to their unit and be required to complete the following: 3 x Young Officer Training Weekends 2 day Sea Survival Course at HMS EXCELLENT or HMS RALEIGH 2 weeks Initial Fleet Time Return to BRNC for a final leadership exercise on the River Dart? Successfully pass the Fleet Board - upon successful completion they will be promoted to the rank of SLt. Upon Promotion to SLt the Young Officers will be required to attend HMS COLLINGWOOD within 12 months for: 2 week Divisional Officers Course 2 x Young Officer Leadership Course Weekends If I have made a mistake, or missed anything out, I'd be grateful if someone could point it out. I'd also appreciate if anyone could clarify what actually happens at each stage, particularly in relation to the two week BRNC confirmation course & beyond. Could anyone also advise if there is a Junior/Young Officer Taskbook? And if so, what does it include? @Ninja_Stoker - Would you be able to assist? Or point me in the direction of someone who might be able to? Thanks for reading!
