Hi, i’m new here. I’ve just sent off my application and wondering how long the process takes to get interviews, tests etc. Also wondering when i’d be likely to start training if successful

As usual the best person to ask would be your nearest AFCO. You’ll soon get assigned one if you’ve only just sent off your application. It all depends on what role you have applied for really. Those classed as high priority will generally go through quicker. Personally I’m more or less at the last stage now, fingers crossed Capita pass me as fit at the paper review tomorrow. It’s took about 3 months in total and I applied as an ET marine engineering submariner.

When I applied I didn’t have to sit the RT and had all the usual forms and documents, interview as well, done within a month. The longest part of the application is nearly always the medical and it certainly was for me. Was told to expect a start date around February if all goes to plan. But bare in mind that some applications might take only 2 or 3 months whilst some can take considerably longer. I believe some roles have waiting lists of up to two years.

Someone better informed than myself might be along in a bit.

It is a long time since I joined up but from reading the comments on this forum what is very clear is that patience is required at every stage. If you start stressing about how long things will take from day one your sense of humour will be shot to bits long before you get the final invitation to join Raleigh. Concentrate on getting fit as it is the one thing totally in your control and let the rest take it's course.
Good luck with your application.
