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.
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?
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
