...Or more specifically, the professional training of those who choose to specialise in hydrography:

Where do we do it and what does it involve?

I’ve read the material on the official Royal Navy website; I’ve searched these forums on numerous occasions; I’ve asked my careers officer; and I’ve quizzed RNAC instructors. I’ve found several answers, all of which seem to conflict with one another.

I would be extremely grateful to anyone who can summarily layout the training route I’ll be taking once I pass-out of Raleigh.

Hope you’re all well.

...I’m going to give this thread a single audacious bump in hope that someone who’s in the know might come across it.

Essentially, I’m simply keen to know whether I’ll be heading to HMS Drake or to HMS Collingwood once I’ve passed out of Raleigh (*touch wood*). Both have been suggested.

Thanks, and apologies for the bump ;).

Hi,

Hopefully I can clarify how your training will go.

9 weeks at Raleigh - Basic training. During this time the instructors for your specialisation training will come across and brief you about your training and how many of each specialisation they need (Hydrographic or meteorology). They will then come back to get your choice of job.

Specialisation training takes place at HMS Drake, Devonport.

Hydro - 14 weeks training, which includes 8 weeks specialist training, 2 weeks seamanship training, 2 weeks first aid training/ fire fighting, 2 weeks adventure training/team building. You will then be drafted to a hydrographic ship.

Meteor - 6 weeks specialisation training, 1 week first aid, 1 week team building = 8 weeks. Then you are drafted to an Air Staion to complete the practical aspects of training.

Hope this helps

SM
