    Hi, i have just recently done my P3 filter interview for the RAF.
    'Communication infrastructure technician,' requires a specialist interview. I have not been given a date as to when the interview is and all i know about it is that it is going to be 1-3 days long and test my functional skills in english and maths.

    I don'tknow what to revise or if there will be a test on other topics as well as the functional skills maths and english.

    If anybody can give some information on the specialist interview for this trade it would be greatly appreciated.


    Hi i am trying to join the same trade and had my specialist interview in august sometime, theres no maths or english tests in it. Its all about climbing various masts to see how you are with working at height, the functional skills tests are in prtc which i completed last week. Also if you have english and maths gcse's your exempt from sitting them. hope this helps.

    I hope you like heights..! Google Stenigot tower - they used to conduct the aptitude/exposure to height test there.

    Not a bad trade to get into. You will probably spend a lot of time working out of RAF Leeming in North Yorkshire.
