1) Call your AFCO
2) Weight? if you can carry it around a 2.4Km track at a reasonable pace its fine. Height? no resrictions i know of.
3) Obviously you haven't researched it better. You are applying for a job that interests you, not a job you wouldn't mind doing for 18 long years
4) Phone your AFCO

The RT, Eyesight and medicals usually take and hour each. easily done in your lunch break if you live close enough

what are some good link can i use to practice the RT to strengthen my knowledge and ability???
 
Soothsayer is right, although weight does matter, as the military sticks religiously to the system of calculating your BMI. If you are a bit heavy you should shed some poundage before your medical.

The chances of getting all the necessary tests done within two weeks are very slim, and finally... if you're only waiting 12 months to start you'll be very lucky.

Also, you should brush up on your knowledge of the jobs and pick one!!! You don't just apply for anything going.
 
YS 20,

ref: Your various questions.

Please remember that RR is an unofficial website.

You have already been advised to contact your nearest AFCO, that remains the best answer for all of your questions.

In the meantime, why not try reading through the many Newbies forums for general information and a little flavour of what RR can support you with.
