I went through plymouth and it took about 2 months to get the paperwork done and then 16 months before they offered me a place, was a long time ago now though.

My application was initially done in Redruth. Everything took about a month or so in total. Since then though, I've transferred my application to the Manchester AFCO - just waiting for a date.

Is this a chuck-up for the careers advisers in the Plymouth AFCO??

hdw... are you originally a cornish lad then?

Nah. I'm from North Wales, but moved down to Cornwall last year after a couple of years living in Manchester. Sadly, the move didn't pan out as I'd hoped, so I ended up moving back home to Wales in December.

I joined up via the Plymouth AFCO, it was called a bog standard RN/RM recruiting office back then when every service had separate recruiting offices. Has it changed much or is there still a pull up bar for aspiring young thrusters to hang off and big posters of Harrier jump jets and wind surfers?

A pull up bar? Wtf?

Did you have to do a set of 20 before they let you in or something?

In Leeds you have to negotiate the door. ABout 90% of the locals fail.

In answer to the original question, I know a lad that went through the Plymouth AFCO in January. He had all his tests etc done within 3 weeks. What's most annoying is that we live in the same town, he went Plymouth and I went Exeter. He applied after me (same trade) and is already at HMS Raleigh when I gotta wait another month yet. Just the luck of the draw I suppose.

I've applied for Warfare Officer through Plymouth AFCO.
I received my AIB date couple weeks back. All together the process has taken about six months, although I did have a delay with my medical which some problems arose.

No, but 10 was the minimum expected or there ended the attempt at joining the Corps, all before sitting down for a chat.

The one on mayflower street is long gone now wet_blobby, assuming that's the one you were referring too, I think it's a restaurant of some description now.

Confused the heck out of me when I went looking for it, only to find out they'd moved.
