Is there anyone who could mentor me through the whole process of applying and joining the RFA? I am a 53 year old female and am hoping to apply as a rating (catering) when vacancies arise hopefully later in the year. At the moment I am trying to get fit in preparation for the recruitment test but does anyone know the exact time a woman of my age would have to complete the 1.5 mile run in? How many press ups would I need to do? Would I keep my knees on the floor and do these have to be done within a certain time? Do women perform press ups in the same way as the men? In initial training what is the longest run that recruits go on and in approximately what time is this completed? I really would appreciate if someone would be willing to keep in regular email contact with me over the coming months to answer many of my other questions and guide me through the whole recruitment/initial training process. All help would be gratefully received.
