I've heard you'll be facing the other way....but you get rum even if it's not winter.  Rumours.  :dunno:

....and the lash, let's not forget the lash. Not as severe as it used to be apparently, just kind of a BDSM thing nowadays, or so I've heard.

What is NETP compared to BMQ L ? I am fully trained in the army and transferring to navy so I was just wondering if there is as much C.O.C.K. on navy courses as army.

Thanks.

Ha ha, those guys are funny!

NETP is a completely different entity. It is environmental: shipboard fire fighting and flood control, sea survival, a bit of history/customs but unfortunately no longer sodomy and the lash-That is why Journeyman and recceguy opted not to join the senior service I hear!

But they were okay with the Rum. Everyone is okay with the Rum. Perhaps they heard the tale of the search for the elusive "Golden" rivet and made a hard right turn to (I presume) join the Army.

Sounds interesting (the sea survival and customs, maybe not so much the Winston Churchill stuff).  Is there a book or syllabus or agenda for NETP?  It's usually 4 to 6 weeks at Esquimault on the Orcas?

So what I gathered is that its not  as severe as Bmq L and more learning traditions and seamanship am I right? And oh ya lots of rum.

Severity can be a matter of perspective.  Sometimes you can spill your drink when the ship rolls.  Then there are also the clear plastic bags of puke....

NETP + NAVCOMM QL3 ??
« Reply #31 on: May 09, 2017, 23:14:14 »
Hey all, just had a couple questions...
Will i be issued a gas mask on NETP, or must I bring one there? It states that it is needed and to bring one but other sailors say differently...
And I just was wondering how the NAVCOMM QL3 is? Is it an enjoyable course?
Is there anything I can do to speed up my security clearance process?
Thanks and regards,

1. Your gas mask will be issued to you either in basic or at NETP, as it is standard kit when you are on ship.

2. No. Enjoy morse code and waving flags.

3. No.
The military isn't really like a James Bond movie where you go for jet training in the morning and then underwater demolitions after lunch.
