  1. Hi all,

    After a recent visit to RE RHQ, I am told that the CP standards for officer entry to RE, RLC and AAC have very recently changed from CP4 to CP3. According to my records I am graded as CP4, however although having failed the dots test, I haven't been sent for a lantern test, meaning I could be either CP3/4? Is that so, and if so how is best to go about ensuring I have been categorised correctly?

  2. Though not for officer entry, I did the dot test when I joined and came back CP4, I have since had an independent test and it still came back CP4. Not sure about the Lantern Test though.
