    hi all
    I applied to join the RAF back in September. I have passed every phase up to the fitness test which I passed back in November. I'm waiting on my start date for my PRTC and RTS. I was wondering if anyone else was in same boat, still waiting on dates or have received there dates if applied around the same time?
    I had a phone call in December saying it wont be till after April 1st due to no spaces. anyone else have this?

    That will depend on the trade you're going for.

    The system is designed so that, ideally, you go straight from RTC to phase 2, if your phase 2 course is only run occasionally, you'll wait longer to get on to the appropriate RTC.

    Other people anecdotally saying they've got on a course before you doesn't mean anything negative about you.

    You've been told when you'll hear something, so just wait till then.

    As Drewski said, its just a waiting game now. It all depends on when your trade training starts, I applied similar time to you and have been given dates of middle of march for prtc and middle of may for basic. Plus it gives you plenty of time to prepare and keep on top of the fitness

    RAF Police, I hadn't heard from the afco at all so I emailed them around a week later and I got dates emailed back to me. I would suggest maybe emailing them and see if they can give you an idea... what are you applying as?

    I might email them then. I have applied for RAF medic. I really would love to be in by April but it doesn't seem like that will happen now.

    Best trade in the air force It's much better on the other side of Halton and Cosford so just put up with all the rubbish and know you've got something decent to look forward to. If you have any questions, give me a shout!

    Hey,

    Not sure how much we can say on here but I have found out this the my intake is July too around the middle? Does that sound like we could be in the same intake? However I'll be attending my PRTC in June.
