Just a quick one, if I train a Captain up in a Fiji for example to say level 12 and then retrain him in a Daring, can he still jump into a Fiji with no retraining?

once you start retraining for A (and he was previously on B) he will always have the -50% thing, after you're done with retraining on A, if you want to put captain on B you will not be able anymore for retraining

Lol, short sweet and to the point, cheers, so having someone like Bert Dunkirk will still cost doubloons if I want to use him in different GB ships?

 

That's savage.

if bert dunkirk is english you will only be able to use it on english ships (if you have event commanders, they are sometimes associated with a nation)

same for all commanders

if dunkirk is specialized for <conqueror> you can use it on <conqueror> without retraining, (excluding premium ships) but this will be different for other ships

 I have been using him on RN CL line, I'm in Leander atm and he has done his jailtime of retraining for it and is now starting to collect Captain XP again, I know I will have to go through -50% again when he reaches Fiji but I am concerned that if I put him in Fiji he is now -50% on Leander, is this how it works?

First port of call is probably the wiki on the subject of captains: https://wiki.wargaming.net/en/Ship:Commander

 

Short version though: at the moment, a captain can only be specialised for one ship at once, and you generally want this ship to be a silver one.

 

If you want to move a captain from one silver ship to another, you'll need to do some sort of retraining, and your captain will no longer be specialised for the ship he left (also, be mindful of captain skills; the skills for a DD, say, will generally be very different to the skills for another class).

 

The exception is premium ships: you can put any captain in any premium ship, provided their nationalities match, and have them operate at 100% without any retraining needed. Of course, the thing about captain skills applies here too i.e. a captain built for a silver DD will be sub-optimal in, say, a premium CV.

 

Just to have on your radar: the upcoming captain skill rework is likely to change things around; the most notable change is perhaps that - apparently - each captain will have a separate skill build for each class, which will make them more efficient for use with premiums of different classes. Of course, this stuff is all WiP at the moment...

if you put him on fiji, and complete retraining he will have to do retrain for leander

if you put him on fiji, and don't complete retraining for fiji, he will be fine for leander

You can use captains on premium ships without retraining them for the ship each time.   So, if you had Bert Dunkirk on the Fiji you could use them on any premium regardless of class (a CA captain may not be useful on a BB but it can be done).  That is one of the benefits.
