Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Hi,
    wondering if anyone can help here. I want to join the army as a foundation ODP. How many of these does the army recruit a year, I know the RAF they take on 2 qualified a year and that's it! Also, what does the application process for an ODP involve?

    Any help would be greatfully appreciated
  2. Whats an ODP?

    This is not a wah! :wink:
  3. Operating Department Practitioner
  4. Hi. I was a TSW for the last 6 months in a kent hospital. I have no idea how many they take on a year but would it be worth getting the qualification (DpHe) outside of the army then joining?
  5. OK, these seem like pretty specialised quals you are talking about here, I suggest that you ask in the "Professionaly qualified RAMC and QARANC" forum, you may well be able to speak to people who are in such jobs at the moment.

    Have you tried asking in an Army Careers Office yet?
