Basic training in the Royal Navy.
Military discipline, forms of punishments
Flotation test - learn to stay afloat long enough to die of hypothermia instead of drowning
Lots of fire-fighting, lots and lots of it - the maintenance recruits tend to do much more of this since they will form the front line fire fighting and damage control crews, but everyone does plenty of it.
Damage control - trying to keep the ship afloat after collisions etc
Marching, learning to act immediately on orders - aka ‘Being shouted at a lot’
Identification of of ranks, learning the correct protocols when in contact with other ranks.
Use of small arms
Parade drill with small arms
Basic first aid
Teamwork exercises such as assault course carrying various ‘quite heavy things’ and ‘getting cold and wet a lot’
Assessments and interviews, these can include personality traits and also educational levels.
Don’t forget these will largely be young people who have never been away from home and are generally naive so there is quite a lot of patrician type of guidance, such as - personal life education from how to handle your pay - for many new recruits this will be the first job they ever had, and hence their first wages - through to personal hygiene, laundry, kit maintenance, including hand sewing of insignia, ironing, boot bulling etc
From this point the recruits will leave the induction establishment and move on to part 2 training, which will be in the specialist field, however all that basic training is reinforced with more of the same.
Part 3 training takes place on board ship, and it depends a great deal upon the drive of the ships company as to how hard you are pushed - there is a recognised program but its rare that this is strictly enforced, you basicly have to learn it as you go along, all except for fire fighting and action drills, you never ever stop doing those no matter what your rank
