Joining the RFA?

I'm one of those odd people that loves phys...apart from the gym are there any good off-road running routes around Raleigh? Also are there regular training sessions eg circuits that I can join?

Yes and yes but not while your in Phase 1. Raleigh has it's own x-country course inside the wire.

Let the PTI's know your sporting preference when you get there, you'll be asked anyway but it doesn't hurt to emphasise the point.
 
Did you sort out your ENG-1 straight away? I've had my job offer but it says "you will be advised when to book an appointment and provided with a list" I've found the list and just about to phone, not sure if I should wait until told to do so? Thanks
I'm just going through trying to get my vaccs done ,been somewhat of a pain so far as my doctors aren't the most helpful and also trying to find my old Army docs, so will be heading off to Liverpool tropical medicine to get them done. I've sent off for the Discharge book and will hopefully be going for my ENG1 asap probably before the vaccs. Even if I fall at this late stage with the RFA you need an ENG1 to work at sea anyway.

Same with my doctor, went to check what vaccs I've had done, the reply was that it's expensive and could take a while! It's checking a computer, how difficult is that? September can't come soon enough
 
Hi Everyone, Having read my Joining instructions, it says under the “dress” section that “I will have already been issued with my uniform, and I should bring this with me” however I’ve not been issued with any uniform, I’ve Emailed the officer in charge of the course, days ago but haven’t received a reply.
 
On the course that just finished. We were definitely issued uniform on the first day down at Raleigh.

I think maybe you've gotten joining instructions with the wrong bit copied and pasted in on the uniform section.

Raleigh is shut for Easter at the moment, so I wouldn't expect a reply until the 16th. I wouldn't worry about it to be honest.

You’re all done then? Did everyone get through? I take it you’re going on the Rosie who’s your mentor going to be? Sorry for all the questions!

Nice one, thanks for letting me know, explains why I didn’t get an email back last week.

Also, how long are you having to wait from training at Raleigh, to joining your first ship?

Thanks in advance.
