Below is the number of Royal Navy Training Management Officer (TMO) applicants between 2011 and 2016.
|Table 1: Number of applicants for training management officer|
|Year||Applications||Average Age of Applicants||Entrants||Average Age of Entrants||% of Applicants who Enter as TMO|
- Entrants are defined as those applicants who have passed AIB, been selected for entry and have started Phase 1 training.
- Percentages based on the number of applicants for TMO in a given year who go on to be commissioned. They might not, however, be commissioned in the same year that they applied.
- Not all of those who applied in 2015-2016 had yet been processed for entry, so the number shown is not final.
- Although the number of applicants had increased significantly over the period 2011 to 2016, the number of available places had not. It had increased by 5 over the 5-year period, hence the fall in the percentage of applicants achieving a commission.
