Hi All, I have eight weeks remaining to prepare for my entry into phase one training. I was hoping that I may be offered some advice as how best to prepare. I've laundered my own clothes for years and improving upon my fitness levels is an obvious answer. Is there anything else I could be doing to make the most effective use of my remaining civilian time? I would like to succeed at Raleigh and I am excited about the prospect of working in a close knit team, however I would like to stand out as a potential officer. I would like to join the Upper Yardman scheme as soon as possible and have been advised by my AFCO to do my very best to shine during phase one and two. Any tips and/or advice on this would be most appreciated. Lastly I'd like to thank everyone who has replied to my questions, you have been most helpful and I look forward to meeting some of you in the near future. Thanks again, Jack!
