Warfare officer

Hi there, this is my first post so I have a couple of questions.
so I want to go into navy diving and I was told that joining as a warfare officer is the route to specialising as a diving officer. Is this correct? Are there any other routes I could go down?

I was also wondering how many intakes there are a year into officer training and roughly how long the application tends to take? Also is it possible to pause your application if a commitment comes up?

thanks in advance for any help!

Welcome.

There's heaps on the site about Divers, some of it nearly complimentary :D

Identify your priority - Diving or Commission. The only way to guarantee either is to join in that role from the outset.

To condense all the crap, if you want to be a "hands-on" Diver, doing the underwater swimming malarkey on a nearly day-to-day basis, join as a Rating. If you want to "take charge", eventually do significantly less diving, "manage" the dive team(s), - Join as a Warfare Officer, do your stint learning your job as a bridge-watchkeeper and navigator for several years first, without a guarantee of specialising as a Mine Clearance Diving Officer.

It basically boils down to what you want to do most. Don't fall into the trap of thinking that educational eligibility automatically assumes aptitude, potential or ability - it certainly doesn't.

Good luck.

You've always been a bit so so ExJ, so how's halloween going? OK or so so :)

"Bugger off" sign on door working. Sprogs in bed. Epic fail on my part as there is no PG in the house!

And you can stop being a right so and so!

Just the thoughts of a blonde ex wren.
