    Sgt Inch High's words may sound harsh but they're true. And that's certainly NOT the first time he's said what he just said.

    However it sounds like you're doing the right thing. Good luck with your next application.

    To answer Nag1'a question - Chef will clarify but when I did PRTC, you do the running first, then if you fail you dont to the Press Ups or Sit ups, they send you on your way there and then after they've given you some advise about getting fit for next time.

    10 Does seen quite a high number to have failed though, I am quite surprised.

    Wly, I didn't take inch high DI's comment badly, I agree, I failed, no matter what reason I failed for,

    So inch high I've learned my lesson and won't be making the same mistake again, I want this and won't quit, I deserved to fail, I accepted it and that's that,

    Nag to answer your question, I looked behind me to look at the guy next to me as he got called out, I slowed down and couldn't catch back up, but no excuses its my fault and I should of minded my own business,

    to wly and nag1 - I still has to complete my press ups and sit ups, of which I both passed, felt a bit pointless, but I wasn't going to question the pti's and get a bad mark to ky name for future applications,

    Regards, Kelvin

    Quick question to anyone who knows the answer- the 2 weeks extra I have to do because I'm female, are these going to be before the RTS start date I've been given or are they done at the end of the course??A Corporal at the AFCO seemed to think I would do them at the end which seemed very odd!

    I was under the assumption it was before... in your "raf halton, welcome to recruit training" booklet, I believe it says "females and some males must complete 2 weeks of fitness conditioning training at raf halton before training" but don't quote me on that, I'm at work still so I don't know for sure

    [QUOTE=chef-for-raf;30714581Nag to answer your question, I looked behind me to look at the guy next to me as he got called out, I slowed down and couldn't catch back up, [/QUOTE]

    My daughter is trying to join the RAf at the moment and to this end she organised herself a weeks work experience at an RAf base whilst waiting for her PRTC date.
    During her week there was an RAFFT for some of the base personell.
    She took part in this and did EXACTLY this. Lucky for her it didnt matter, but someone was being shouted at for not hitting the line and my daughter slowed to look behind her, couldnt catch up and stopped at 6.7.
    She knows now just to keep running till they drag her away if and when PRTC happens.

    Yeah your daughter was lucky, trust me it sucks, only 5 months and 1 week till I reapply, tell your daughter to not make that mistake again, worst 30 seconds of my life... everything went into slow motion, even my running

    Has she got her prtc dates yet? Give her my best,

    I believe, maybe someone will correct me, that they issue prtc dates on the basis of how much the trade is in need of new personal,as a chef, we are in demand at the moment, I got from interview to prtc in 6 weeks, but 1 lad I studied public services with in collage waited 11 months for his prtc after his pjft, so, who knows
