Have you received your invite to a pre joining briefing yet Pondwater? I started the process of applying as an AET at the back end of February this year and I received an invite to a briefing on 12th June, with a provisionally accepted entrance date of 17th September.

It's shocking with the process, seems so long now! Give the careers a call, it won't be a problem, sometimes the RN needs a kick up the rear!

I'm wondering the same thing... I'm just a bit more impatient.

I sent off my application forms last thursday, so they should have gone through it by now right?
Worth me giving them a call, or wait till next week?
 
It may just be the security clearance process taking time, it has never been fast and seems to be pretty slow at the moment. My stepson applied for a civilian job with the army and after 6 months has still not heard. I would agree that you should be given some info on how the process is going and sme estimate of when you will get your date.

Good luck

Me again.
I gave careers bods a call last week. I was told there is a back log at the branch managers end and to be patient. I have got a date for sit rep kind of an interview to see how things are going next month.This happens 6 months after the formal interview. Hurry up and wait it seems.
Oh and the security form was back after 2 months... ish.

Geordie git ought to be jammy git. At least things are moving for you. I started this all off straight after christmas. Test medical and interview done by end of feb. So maybe i'll hear soon. Fingers crossed.

I wonder what the hold up is, the lads I sat my entrance tests with joined in the June intake. If it weren't for an ankle injury I got causing me to delay my fitness test I would've been there with them.

Well good luck anyway, you could still get on the September intake. Maybe I'll see you there.

P.S. How's the fitness training going? Running in this summer heat is fecking killing me.

Ah fitness...Sounds like the PC brigade have made things so easy now the a fat usless cntus can pass as not to hurt thier ego's!. There is a fittnes regime I read on military forums that is a piece of piis run a couple of miles every other day few sit ups and swimming ect. nothing taxing. Assuming who ever wrote it knows what they are talking about. (And assumtion is the mother of all f^#k up's) I don't think there's much to worry about. I have been running early morning,so it aint too bad.
