Hi all, This question may be already answered but I can't find any info on a search of this site. Anyway here goes. I am interested in applying for MA(SM) and have two questions. 1) given the recent SDSR will applications for MA(SM) be required, or just held in an interested applicant file untill when required? 2) I have 9 years under my belt as a OM(C) - (AB(CIS) or whatever they are called now. I left 14 months ago to start an educational course but the funding for the course has now been withdrawn. Will this impact on my application positively or negatively? 3) are these daft questions? Any advice would be appreciated and I await the advice of all the AFCO Jedi monks out there. Thanks all.
