Hi, im intrested i joining the para's. My situation at the min is self employed, I aplied last may 2007 to the marines. I failed y medical due to a heart murmur which was in march, I went private in april for a ECG scan and got the all clear, but my results still have not come back and my local AFCO told me my R/T would not be until after easter, which makes me mad because I know im fit so I decided to join the para's. Im now 24 ( 5 weeks ago) would you consider me now too old or not. And iv read recent reports that the trainasium course on the test week is no longer. Thankyou for your time and help.
