Happy New Year to you, Matey.
I have spoken briefly to some blokes who went for the original fitness induction weekend. I can't remember what the exact fitness requirements are, but I know that you have to do the mile and a half in under 10.5 minutes, and you have to do a certain number of pull ups and dips. It sounds similar to the entry test for the booties, although I can't be sure.
They also need you to be an ex-mob diver, or be BSAC or PADI qualified to advanced open water level.
Hope this helps?

Sorry, I did reply to your questions about the UWFP, and thought it was posted...If you have your Unit details Im sure I can put you intouch with someone who can help....The Branch is certainly in its infancy but my feelings are that there very keen to get it underway...Johno
