I’m looking to go for HC once I get my AB’s ticket and was after a bit of advice/info.
What’s the transfer process like? I’ve heard it’s like pushing an open door as they’re so short.
Is there any aptitude testing as part of the process?
I’ve heard the course is quite tough, what was your experience of it?
With regards to the annual medical how much more stringent is it compared to the ENG and what are they particularly interested in?
I know it’s a few questions but if you could help in anyway it would be appreciated.
Mixed reviews, do you have to do a fitness test as part of the HC medical. Like bleep/msft? Also how strict is medical with regards to weight? Guessing if your restricted on a normal Eng for being fat then they will also pull you for this at HC medical?
I can't really advise regards the medical. In my case I was offered the role without any further exams or interviews. As it was last minute I was asked to complete the medical after I completed the HC course at Yeovilton. However I am diabetic so had a good idea there would be issues and was reluctant to compete course without first doing the medical. Anyway I finally spoke to a Doctor at Yeovilton who confirmed as a type 2 diabetic I wouldn't pass the extra medical. So that was the end of that.
