I'm going in as a warfare specialist I applied last year and my estimated joining time is the end of 2013. How ever I was told a lot of people are dropping out for what ever reasonso joining times should be going down. Just what I was told at the Afco!
there was a large backlog for Seaman Spec and at one point it was about a 5 year wait. As people are saying we are seeing a large drop-out from the candidates who are waiting for all branches. I know the next avaiable entry for Seaman Spec's is Jan 2013, but it will depend where you are on the waiting list as to whether you will get that entry. only your own careers advisor can give you a true answer, as they have access to all the information required to give you a best Guess!!Hope this helpsSM
