Finally....................... My Phase 1 Date!

#1
Hi all,

Just a quick post as I am over the moon I have finally got my date to start phase one at Pirbright, 07/07/08!

I originally started my application in February 2007. After being put on referal due to an old motocross injury, I eventually got my selection date for July 07. Finally 18 months after starting my application I will be joining. For everyone getting frustrated as I was kepp at it, it will come eventually!

Thanks all for answering all my questions in the last (very long!) 12 months.

Is there any reason why you have to wait another 6 months? ... i thought that my application took ages, if i have to wait that long then im doomed.

My mate who is currently applying for the booties applied last july he has only just got to the PJFT. Mine has took 4 months so far and i will just about be doing my ADSC next month oh well gives me more time to train.

Im due to attend selection in Febuary, im pretty sure i remember my recruiter telling me that it wouldnt be long after passing selection that i would be heading off to basic training. Is he bullshitting me or does it depend on which job you are going for ect?

Mine took 1 month from walking in fresh out of college to starting basic, get your doctors forms sorted, there the ones that take the p1ss

Yup, sorted those doctors forms out, that was the main reason for slowing me down also. I felt like having a go at my GP for taking it so bloody seriously. But i suppose it has to be done.

I am going in the REME as an Aircraft Technician. As I understand there is quite a substantial waiting list for the job. Other lads on my selection were told they would be in within a matter of weeks.

Ah bugger, so i will more or less be waiting many more months?

I cant be doing with that as im getting kicked out of my house next month and was planning on making the Army my home. I am joining the RE as an Armoured Engineer.




[EDIT] My bad :wink:
