Hi all, Im new to this site and have a couple of questions regarding the Mine Clearance Diver aquaint course. Basically I applied for the MCD a few months ago. You have to undergo all the normal medical and clearance tests as any other new recruit. However the final selection test (for MCDs) is a two day aquaint down at pompey. I have been told by the afco that this is basically a two day beasting, designed to test your physical and mental aptitude and for you to see if diver branch is for you. Now, i really want to find out more about these two days and what exactly the physical tests are. For a normal recruit joining the navy you know exactly what physical tests are involved. You have to do x number of press ups, x number of sit ups and be able to run x miles in x times. Does anyone know what the exact physical test are for this aquaint? How far and how fast should I be running? How many press ups, dips and chin ups should I be able to do? Whats the best way to train? Sorry for all the questions but im finding it really hard to find out about this. Cheers!
