    Ok chris-mac, the trade is MT driver, just to rack your brains does this trade open on a fairly regular basis?

    MT Driver is currently overmanned as a Trade, so recruiting and training will be tight - still happening, but fewer courses. They will be trying to time your basic training so you are not hanging around waiting for the trade training to start.

    yeah i know, just thought it would be easier to have just names on separate thread and leave the conversations in here?

    I am applying for AMM Mech.
    I applied in July, had a pre selection interview presentation and got my interview in september, medical and PJFT in october. I am pretty lucky to have these dates considering some people have waited nearly a year already?!

    I hope so! I have been training hard for it so i will hopefully pass the fitness. Taking it one step at a time though, looking forward to PRTC.
    Have you got a travel pass yet?

    Ash I'm in the exact same stage as you. Are you going in as amm av cq? Applied april and done my medical/pjft september. Odds are we will be at prtc/rts at the same time....well it would make sense. All we can do is wait and wait and wait

    AMMs seemed to have been massively over recruited so I dont know how often theyll be going now, Cosford is utter madness.

    yeah im not phoning till next year anymore.about AMMs being massively over recruited they do this for a reason as after your first tour your not guaranteed to complete your trainin e.g you dont show enough potential to go onto your advanced training (avionics) then again your right about them over recruiting altho they havent massively over recruited its just they have accepted to many amms over the space of time=which in respect has caused delays to cosford etc.
    anyway ash yeah i would like to go to raf odiham but at this stage i just want dates :P
    have you got msn?

    I hope your working on your fitness, as the fitness test on PRTC will be pass or fail from 14 Jan. So make sure you get as much training in as possible, or you may not make the mark.
