First day of training tips

Post by manchoi2000 » Fri Aug 27, 2010 1:41 pm

Hello everyone, I am just asking the question, does anyone have any advice about the things I should take or do on my first day of training on 6th Sept?

I intend to take a fresh A4 notebook, fresh pens, my paperwork that HR have asked I take with me, a good attitude and confident outlook. I will be dressed neatly, smart but casual, ready to recieve my uniform hopefully on the first day, and I will take a packed lunch (I've heard Force HQ canteen is real good, but my wasitline could prob do with a salad instead! haha) :D But besides that did any of you find anything that you found was key to your first day of training?

I am a tad over-excited about started :sljo: but it would interesting to know if there are some neat tips or advice so I can be fully prepared for my very first day :D

enjoy it, but don't come away from it expecting to know the job, i know that probably sounds like common sense but i know people who have come away from day 1 with the attitude 'that was boring' you will probably suffer from a bit of information overload as policing is like another world sometimes, if you can, then it wouldn't be a bad idea to learn the ranks, you never know who will be floating round, and i've yet to meet a Chief Superintendant who appreciated being called mate by a newbie

other than that i think you're got most if not all bases covered.

good luck
