Hi mate. I have applied to go in as an Air Tech. Got selection this coming Monday. My AFCO recruiter told me that it was possibly going to be February untill the next intake. After you pass selection you also get put on a waiting list in case anyone drops out so may be sooner. Hope this helps.
I have been told that there could be a chance of someone dropping out, how likely is this then?
I couldnt understand why anyone would want to drop out.
Good luck DanJJardim on your selection, I havent got my date yet but my deferal period is up next wed so got my barb at 9 in the morning, can't wait, then go to cuba for two weeks, they reckon when I get back everything should be sorted to get a selection date.
Hi DanJJardim, I got deffered in oct 2005 because i wasnt 4 yrs clear of asthma. so here i am 2 yrs later, done allsorts in the time i've waited and not found anything i want to do as much as the army so im definately excited at the moment.
Just got my barb test next week then got to get my med notes off, hope they go through ok. they should do.
Spoke to my brother who is sgt in REME, he reckons everything should be ok, reckons I might be at Arborfield the same time as him which should be good, the only thing is I am guessing I will be in by the end of the year, but thats being optimistic.
REME Air Techs (Both types) are currently oversubscribed with applicants, and you are not being fobbed off with being told it could take until February for a space.
Prior to doing AOSB, I was down on the list for it, and once people get on the list, they don't tend to drop out. Stick with it, I work with Air Techs at present, and it's worth the wait from what they say.
Hi. Passed my selection at Lichfield 2 days ago for my first job choice (Aircraft Tech). Was even told by the recruiter that I face a bit of a wait but, like many, says it is worth that wait. Am so looking forward to starting though, selection has wet my appetite even more!
my place at harrogate for the september intake was garunteed yesterday after getting my results. im also going as air tech, but when i started my application in january they offered me a place in october to go in as an adult soldier, which was like 10 months away, so there probly is a long wait.
hope this helps
