No, but I should imagine if they're similar to the Royal Navy then you'll need either a handful of A levels or a degree.

However, I'm curious as to why you'd want to join the US, UK, Irish, Italian and Australian navies? How many passports do you hold? How many countries are you willing to die for?

U.K. Navy...Royal Navy....British Navy...

Anyways, I ask about these particular countries mainly because of relatives who I know that are searching for naval qualifications which are in different countries. They are in different countries...these countries. Plus, I plan on moving to one of these countries to live in, but I do not know which one. I am a sailor, who wants to fight.

thank you for answering

I refer you to one of my previous comments; what passport do you hold?

Few Navies will recruit you as someone who wants to fight; in such an environment they're looking for people who want to serve.

Can a person even hold five passports?? i've only ever heard of a person holding three.. his father was American, mother was Australian, and both were permanent residents in the UK when he was born, so he also got UK citizenship as well as Oz and US

Holding more than 3 passports is possible, but who said anything about holding 5? Im not holding five passports. I heard of people having more than 1, more than 3 passports. Thats one crazy goal for me though.

I think that to join the U.S. navy then you just have to have a high school diploma and of course be a citizen or be on that road.

Someone said it. I am almost positive you only need good passes in 3unit maths, physics and chemistry and good physical fitness and you're in.

it depends if you want to go in as an officer or a rating. ratings can pretty much get in for certain jobs if they can read thier own name. i believe that its pretty much mandatory 2 get a degree 2 join the uk navy, though it depends on the role. like if u want 2 b an engineer i believe u need an engineering degree, if u want to be a warfares officer u dont need a specific degree

however for most navies you need to have been a citizen of that country from birth, lived there for 5 years n a number of other things. they also do psychological assessments, and those who "want to fight" dont really get in. they're not looking for little rambos. i was speaking to an army careers officer who says he tends to get 2 groups of people
group 1) losers who are physically inactive, dont play sport, get bullied, but have a fascination with military films, love buying uniform from army and navy stores, can tell u the exact specifications of every weapon that they have, wish that we would go to war more often etc etc
group 2) the group who join up because they love sport, love camping, dont mind the idea of going to war but dont really want 2 go kill people, bascailly joineed up because they dont want 2 work behind a desk

obvioulsy there are other groups but if u dont fit in2 the second group then i wouldnt recommend signing up, u wont get in
