Entry date- March 2020 application

Hi ,
I was wondering if anyone that applied around the same time as me march 2020 had received and entry date yet?

My recruiter had put in for a date but I haven't yet received it, I know 2020 was a bit of a crazy year which has delayed everything.

Be good to hear how other that applied in 2020 are getting on :)!

I applied in April 2020, I have a starting date 25/01/21.

It is role dependent on when you get a date.
I.e. engineer on skimmers is a 1-1,1/2 years wait
engineer on boats is can be 6 months
CT is about 2 years

What role did you apply for?

Cheers mate, aye a did apply for boats.

When I was looking at roles my afco said it would be likely a year and a half wait for ET(ME), if that helps.
 
I applied in early Jan for ETME and I got my start date in October/November for February 1st. Afco first said the earliest I'd get would be may for marine engineer however it seems they may be a higher priority as a majority of those in my start date are also ETME. Goodluck with your application, I'm sure you'll get your date soon

Applied a bit later on myself towards the back end of August/early September as an ET(MESM) which was high priority at the time and my start date is late May this year, so even some of the high priority roles seem to have been pushed way back. Myself and my AFCO were under the impression I’d get a start date Jan/Feb but obviously it hasn’t worked out like that.
 
My son also applied for AET in April. Originally they said April 2021ish but he's had nothing else regarding a start date. Were you told something else at the start of the process?
Hello mate,
Yes I was originally told between April and June 2021, AFCO did say they’re reviewing the air arm branch dates within the coming weeks so I should get a confirmation then.

How is your lad finding the preparation, such as fitness etc ?

He is doing OK thank you.

He is keen to get to the end of his AS levels in school now as we thought he would be off before they finished. Fitness is steady, he is building up his mileage capability and ran a half-marathon a few weeks ago so as long as he keeps up his regular 5k runs the basic fitness will be fine. I've had a chat with him about strength work and we agreed it would be sensible to up the ante on this once he has a start date. He is proving very useful to me helping with DIY and gardening.

Just got to be patient now, it will be a great career I am sure.

Hope the wait is not too long for both of you.
