  1. i was just wondering what is the minimum time it will take because i am having a different job interview friday and i know a guy that works there he is pretty shore i will get the job and i have a barb test tuesday.
  2. I first applied in January, had my BARB second week of February, have an interview with the Sergeant Major at my local AFCO on Monday, then I'll hopefuly get a date for ADSC. So, about half a year for me. But it varies. As I understand it, my AFCO has a rather particular way of doing things.
  3. its tuck me about 4 months to get to ADSC which i have next week
  4. Two months from ADSC to Catterick here.

  10. Hello there... Well my sons process too 3 months from start to finish. I do think I kept the time limits down by personaly taking all his forms to the army careers office,1 hr away, in every time. I was that eager lol! He did his selection in April & starts 7th Sept at Harrogate. He is using this time to keep fit. I wish you all the best & hope that all goes ok. :D
