    Mmmm you are right...Should have researched that one.. Sorry.....Perhaps I can put a post together with all of the AFCO phone numbers...

    Moderator - Think it is worth a sticky?
    It already is one, though anyone can add to it if they like.

    Apologies....again I should have checked.

    Just to add to the 'why do you want to join the RAF' theme...

    what makes you want to join the RAF over the Army or Navy?

    i don't like water or saying "SA" instead of sir

    My thoughts exactly, more or less! I'm sure that I'll get asked at some point but I can't put it into words, it's more a feeling really.... I know I can't say that at OASC without sounding like some kind of hippy (no offecnce to any new-age types reading this!)

    Can anyone help please?

    Is your career choice catered for in the other services?
    Family background/connection with the RAF?
    Childhood interest?
    Air Training Corps?

    Thanks for the quick response!

    I'm a CI at my local ATC, I've always had a vague interest in the RAF but I only started seriously considering it as a career after I joined the ATC, which started just as something fun to do of an evening.

    I've applied for Provost, with Admin as second choice, I'm also considering MOD police and Civvy police as other options but RAF is where my heart is. I want the forces lifestyle, which is why I want RAF over the other options.

    I must have the record for longest application process so far - I applied in Jan 06 and have still not made it to OASC yet! (Due to pathetic attempts at learning to ski in January!) So i've picked up quite a lot of info along the way but this is one question I keep coming back to and can't seem to answer.

    Well there you go, you just answered it.

    You joined the ATC because I assume you wanted to do some voluntary work and something different and through being part of the ATC you developed an interest in the RAF and since then it's been something that you've always wanted to do and has felt right for you.
    I take it you've been on summer camps so you can say how the lifestyle you saw while on base attracted you. Why Provost? Why not the Police Force? - the lifestyle. You've answered it yourself

    I haven't been on a summer camp, so I can't say that it's from experience but I have several friends in the army and have a fairly good understanding of forces life, despite not being on base for long periods. Thanks for all your help. Are you joining/in? (Sorry, should do my homework but I'm an infrequest visitor and often get people confused so thought it best to ask!)

    I'm joining. Hopefully should get my OASC date soon. Good luck!

    Perhaps you could organise some base visits to see how Police Officers work within the RAF, if you go on the RAF careers website there is a section on work experience. Not only is it a good thing to do, it makes you look like you have made the effort to do some research of your own, to make sure the RAF is for you!!

    Thanks, good suggestion, I have already got a visit arranged for the near future, I'm really looking forward to it!

    I hope other people wanting to join will understand where I'm coming from with this 'gut feeling,' I just know that it's what I want to do. I've been trying to get in for over a year now, and despite my nuisance leg conspiring against me I'm still dead set on doign this. Hopefully my determination to get in will stand me in good stead. I've never been injured before and found resting very difficult - though i did find a post from TPD that gave me a kick in the tush to make me realised that it wasn't worth risking it for a dayon the slopes. (Even if it's taking tons of will power not to try to learn to ski again!)
