Hydrographic, Meteorological and Oceanographic Specialists

Postby Amy269 » Tue 14 Jul 2009 17:36

Hi everyone, I'm not sure how to word all of this as I don't know much about the RN.
After leaving school and not bothering with college I have found an interest in meteorology and weather patterns. I really wish to take this further but I can't afford to go to college, after Googling "Careers in Meteorology" I found that I could join the Royal Navy and train to become a Meteorological and Oceanographic Specialist rather than fork out thousands to go to college then university.
Now I have a question or 2, is there anyone on here that is training for this? I want to know what it is like!
The nearest Career Office is an hour on a coach away from me so I figure it would be a good idea to get an insight on here (thanks again, Google) as to what life would be like in the RN training to be a meteorological and oceanographic specialist?
Thanks for reading, I wait in anticipation for a reply

Hi Amy,

I'm Karen a Petty Officer in the RN actually a medic in a training establishment, your post has been passed to me to see if i can give you any further help or information. Lt Cdr Waring was made aware of your post by another P2S member, as he is not a member of the site he has asked me to find out where you live so we can get someone from the careers office to contact you and give you specialist advice on how to become a hydrologist within the RN. You can get hold of me via here or on my e-mail addy which is kasdoc@gmail.com
