Comm Research in the Navy
« on: May 21, 2009, 17:16:59 »
Hi,

I enrolled for Comm Research in the Navy, talking with the interviewer today, he didn't seem familiar with the navy applicants' training process. When do purple trades do the NETP?

Thanks!

You'll do NETP when you get posted to a ship. You must do a Soldier Qualification (BMQ-Land is the word of the day) since its more likely you'll get posted to 2 EW Sqn than to a ship. If you're looking for sea-time, you may want to look at a hard-Navy trade, 291 is not it. I've seen Army 291ers on ship more than Navy guys.

Ah ok, I knew about the SQ and the sea-time... the Comm Research is only a bridge while I do a BSc. Comp Science... then it'll be a hard sea trade!  :threat:

At least I have the possibility to do all elements' basic training (SQ and NETP) ... pretty awesome!  >:D
