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. Hi, can someone tell me the role of the warfare officer in detail. I know they are like officers of the watch and that sort of thing, but do they spend much tme in the ops room?

    OMG! 8O :roll:
     
  3. In general - and before you all shout I did say in general - Warfare Officers will be required to do at least 1 watchkeeping job, there are then opportunties to sub specialise in Mine Warfare, Diving so on, some may undertake a Navigators course other hydrographer. After your fun the career managers will want their pound of flesh and send you off to PWO course, that will generally be followed by 2 tours as a Warfare Officer and then small ship CO/Frigate XO (2 i/c). From there it depends how successful your career is as to whether you are selected for promotion and or a ship command.
     
  4. Search the site, there are many, many threads on the topic.
     
  5. What exactly is a PWO course?

  7. hi, hope this is the right place!
    Ive been looking through the site, RN careers stuff online and booklets from the AFCO and seem to be getting a conflicting impression as to Warfare Officer training e.g. time periods, order of phases etc. Just looking for some clarification if anyone out there can help?

    what are the differences that are concerning you?..... don't worry too much about the phases of training at BRNC - thats about to change.
     
  9. basicly the length of time from starting at BRNC to leaving, joining first ship etc, and the sort of thing that you would be taught during phase 1, 2 3 etc. How is it changing, and when is this change likely to happen? and anything else you think i should know! cheers
     
  10. any response to the above post, or am i being to demanding lol
     
  11. No-body knows when it's all changing. I'm at BRNC now and no-one knows. Just don't worry about it. You won't be expected to know the ins and outs of basic training.

    Just chill out get signed up and go with the flow.
     
  12. ok cheers, how is BRNC, is it worth it lol? if it's anything like it sounds on here its really hard work but worth it in the end!?

    Each job lasts for about 2 to 2 1/2 years.
