    It all varies. Trades go in peaks and troughs and the lead in times to Halton alter depending on those peaks.

    Why do you ask?

    Thanks for your reply.

    Was just wondering. Thinking about applying for the role of Survival Equipment Fitter soon. Would of just liked to know roughly how long it would be before I was joining after the aptitute test, etc.

    Are you currently in the application process?

    Don't let things like that sway you. If you want a trade then stick with it, don't just go for one because you can get in earlier. If your career goes well you could spend 10-15-20+ years there, you really don't want to rush a decision like that.

    Take your time and find out which trade is for you. An extra month is nothing in the grand scheme of things.
