  1. Hi guys, just wondering how your application processes are going.

    I’m just wondering how you’re coping with the wait...

    I sent off my Security Clearance form and passed my PJFT ealry September but I’m yet to hear anything :(

    Im sure I aint been forgotten about but it would be nice to just get a letter saying dont worry, were still thinking of you :w00t:

    edit: I know the current processing time is huge so Im not expecting anything soon :thumright:

    Dear Birdy

    Dont worry, we're still thinking of you. Hope you're well & Happy New year.

    Love from,

    The Careers Office.

    Seriously: Give the AFCO a ring to see if they can give you a guestimate of when you may be allocated a provisional offer of service.

    Good luck
  3. Thats all I wanted, cheers mate :thumright:

    Yeah I guess I should, just didnt want to seem to pushy. I'll givce em a ring.
  4. Hey everyone this is my first post although ive been lurking here for a few months.

    Im joining as an MET too, when I first went to the AFCO they told me there was about a 8 month wait for entry. I did My PJFT either late July or early August (i cant quite remember) and just got a letter last week with my date for the 20th of April so they were quite accurate. Dont worry about not hearing from the AFCO though I hadnt spoken to them since I did my PJFT and cleared security, although i did give them a ring just before christmas.

    Welcome to Rum Ration Superhands, congratulations on your entry date & good luck to you.

    Just to clarify, for those that may be confused by job titles and are wondering what MET is, the trade is officially called Engineering Technician (Marine Engineer) or ET(ME).

    For the older "viewers": What used to be called MET or METOC or NA(Met) or OM(HM), the old Meteorological branch is now called WS(HM), which, rather confusingly, stands for Warfare Specialist (Hydrographic, Meteorological and Oceanographic)
  6. Hey Birdy
    I passed my PJFT in sept. and only just got my date so dont worry you'll receive it soon :thumright:

  8. Well wouldn't you know it, got home tonight and there was a lovely brown envelope waiting on my door mat.

    Ive got my provisional Entry Date 18th May :) :) :)
