ETWE CIS or ETWE?

Hello guys, I'm up to the fitness test in my application which I guess is currently the last stage before getting the Raleigh date since PRNC is currently not happening.
I have been set on ETWE for over a year now and haven't really looked at anything else as I was told by my local afco "This does seem to be the right role for you."

This morning however I got called by a serving CIS women as they are looking for people in that role due to the need of them. After a day of research and reading on this forum in the past the transfer to the engineering department didn't do the role well. What is the update with that? I got told on the phone they are very similar roles? Is this true? The pay seems to be the same now.

Any info would be great as there isn't much out there on updated specifics.

Hi, I think we are at the same point with just the pjft to go.

What is the question by the way? I didn’t really understand it. Are you asking if the CIS role is within engineering?

Also, I think unless you really like the CIS role stick with your preference. Being this far along the process, we have already been at the back of the que to priority roles throughout the application, so may as well keep going now you’re at the end

Yeah Its been a long ass process! Ive kinda done the PRNC before as a "look at life course". So im not losing out to be honest, dont want to do that squad run ever again.

And my question is more around what the differences are, they both seem to fixing the same systems from what I got told. Seems weird to have both.

I failed my pjft yesterday, I knew I would as I have had food poisoning from undercooked chicken. Was risking shitting myself even doing it.

4 weeks until my retake and ill be running every other day I reckon, what prep are you doing?

This has been done to death - have a go and search the site, but......
Just because you may get in a couple of months earlier doesn't mean you will enjoy the 'new' role.
You say you have been set on ETWE for over a year? A new quick note from the afco does not change that.
Think long and hard - don't per tempted to jump for early entry in a different role - you may hate it in the end.

Sure you will do fine just keep training when you are not sick

I am going to the gym (mixture of running and weights) and also doing joe wicks hiit in YouTube to get burpees etc in too.

My estimated wait for AET is March onwards
