Hi yeah same love to hear what to expect and you were lucky they wouldn't let me have a start date til my clearance arrived.Don't worry too much about the clearance, mine didn't get approved until I'd already been at Dartmouth for a few weeks.
Enjoy the course, it's a little bit of bullshit but it can be good fun if you at least have a decent stab at everything. In fact I think you have to now because we were told the course from now in is pass or fail and a fail is a sacking. It's not hard though.
If anyone's interested I'll try writing up a post of what to expect
I was wondering what happened after the passing out parade - is there time off before starting trade training?
Do we need to write the intro essay? What's the best and worst part of the whole thing?
