So, I'm already a qualified 2nd engineer and a crew agent approached me about the RFA who seem interested in getting me in for an interview but as I haven't had any contact whatsoever with them I'm kind of relying on 2nd hand answers to a few questions I might have. So I thought I'd try here.
- I have an appointment for the psychometric test on Wednesday in Gateshead. However, I ride a motorbike so was wondering on the formality of this. If it's informal that I can get away with jeans and a shirt then I should be ok but anything more and I'll have to find a car and deal with rush hour. So is it formal at all?
- They also sent a small questionnaire asking about convictions, including motoring convictions. I had points on my license like 10 years ago so they're all gone but was unsure if it needs to be put on. It obviously isn't a big deal so I'm not worried about putting it on but best to know.
- I'm trying to get back to work at sea after a year and a half off so I'd like to get back quickly. The process seems to take months but I was wondering if it was quicker if I'm already qualified and ready?
