    I'm hoping to join the RNR soon. I received a letter to book my PFJT last week but the gym thats been referred to me has been sold. Is it possible to ask another gym to do the test if its not on the list?

    I tried ringing my AFCO but they're closed 'till 7th Jan.

    No. They won't have the contract to do it. Wait until the new year.

    While many cannot knock your enthusiasm, but consider this: it is Thursday before Christmas. Many people - including those in the RNR and AFCO - are celebrating the forthcoming holiday period by preparing to go on leave and having office parties. So excuse us while we let our hair down after what was a very hectic 2012 for the Armed Forces.

    So demanding a response from us and calling everybody "rude" after 89-or so views will not endear you to the bosom of Rum Ration... :roll:

    Last I heard was that the new PJFT contract has yet to be confirmed. The buzz was Nuffield Health according to a Naval spokesman overheard in the scran queue.

    In the meantime AFCOs are liaising with RNR and RMR units in some areas so that regular & reserve applicants can undertake a PJFT under the supervision of an RN or RM PTI.

    Those waiting to take a PJFT will be notified in due course by their AFCO which temporary local arrangements are in place or which new contracted fitness centre is being used.

    As indicated above, most AFCOs are closed until 7th January, 'apocalypses' permitting.

    Well I did look but to be honest I wouldn't have a feckin clue. Maybe I should have told you to go for a run with a camera strapped to your head and then send it into your AFCO, as I'm sure they would find that acceptable given the circumstances.
