Injury before fitness test


I have my fitness test tomorrow but think I've damaged cartilage in my knee.
Just wondering if I cancel my test how long before I get scheduled another.

Ring your AFCO now and ask their advice. No one on here will be able to tell you quick enough seen as time is of the essence.

If you've damaged a cartilage and need corrective surgery, you'll need to attend a further medical examination, post surgery & rehabilitation. Generally, if surgery is required, it's a 12 month knock-back.

At the other end of the scale if you call your AFCO before the 28 days are up and just need the injury to recover without surgery, you can negotiate a realistic timescale to take the PJFT.

As stated, it's good to talk with your AFCO - It's amazing how many applicants make the call regarding injury on the day before the 28 days elapse.

What would happen if the 28 days had passed? It's just that I think this is a long term injury
As long as the AFCO are made aware before the initial 28 days have elapsed, it's not classed as a fail and it'll take as long as it takes to recover, without penalty.

If you follow the AFCO link in my sig block, you can search for your AFCO under the
FIND YOUR NEAREST CAREERS OFFICE function & email them. Email is good - it proves you made contact on a given day.
