    just got to have final interview.This should be sometime next week.Not sure when i will start.Apparently there is no waiting list for etme(sm) just a case of waiting for the engineering desk to ask for new recruits in that area.I heard it takes less than 4 months from when you sit your pt test :lol:

    Hi Wil5924, I also want to be a ME(SM).
    I have completed and passed my psychometric test, had my eye examination, currently awaiting my medical on Thursday morning then onto my fitness and final interview.
    I can easily achieve my swim, not so easily achieve my run and I'm currently working on my press-ups and sit-ups.
    How far are you currently through the process?
