  1. Hey all,

    I'm in the process of re-enlisting and I was speaking with the recruitment officer today, when I asked this question. He thinks it is done once I begin phase 1/2 training; however, when I last went through the recruitment process, it took place after my interview and lasted 2.5 months.

    Does anyone know when the security checks are performed for re-enlistees?

    I know the process goes BARB > RG8 > ADSC > Phase 1, where does the checks fit in?


  2. I've just done mines and my process to this point has been

    Initial visit>Application form>hand in app, and do BARB>Fill out RG8 and send off>(after about 3 months) RG8 Cleared>Went on a fitness assesemnt with a local regiment>Got my security form>Interview and handed my security for back in> Present Day 8)

    Hope this helps .
  3. depends on trade group mate. some trades do it again at start of phase 2 because you are about to start touching the kit.
