    Hi guys. I need some help to find out info about becoming an intelligence officer in the RAF. ive got lots of general information about officer training,selection etc. However, i have only found generic scraps of information on the web regarding RAF intel officers.
    does anyone know about:
    -the requirements for entry into the branch?
    -the specialist training provided after selection?

    Thanks

    5 GCSEs/SCEs and 2 A-levels or 3 Highers or equivalent(this can be a degree . GCSEs/SCEs at Grade C/3 minimum to include English language and maths

    for specialist training I dont have an answer for as its not a branch I know anything about. If someone does know they will add to this though

    It is specific with the subjects. It says minimum of C at English and Maths. After that you can take whatever you want. It could be in woodwork and basketweaving for all they care.

    Training for Intellegence Officer goes as follows:

    You'll start by doing IOT at Cranwell like every other officer. After IOT, you'll follow a five month specialist training course at Chicksands in Bedfordshire. The course id designed to give you a thorough grounding in basic Intellegence techniques and sources, including:

    -Intellegence agencies and their methods,
    -Collection and analysis of intellegence, and
    -briefings and report writing.

    This course also covers military equipment recognition, tactics, operations and weapons technology. If your first tour is as an imagery analyst, you'll then undergo a further four months training in imagery analysis, also at Chicksands. When you've completed you're specialist training, you'll get your first posting.

    Hope this helps, if you have any more questions on Intellegence Officer, feel free to ask, it's another branch I wanted to go into, but wasn't allowed to

    thank you so much for that..
    i understand that the training at Chicksands is joint with other services, is that right? also, why weren't you allowed to become an intelligence officer?
