1. Yes and no. Based upon your other questions not the level you are looking for. Especially at lower ranks.

2. As often as most other naval trades. Expect to spend your first 2-4 years posted to a sea going unit.

3. You can, no guarantees.

4. Yes. They'll start your screening in basic.

5. There are some postings for this, however its not some type of sub trade.
