Hi

Can anyone tell me a bit about the training? I've been told my training might be in Reading. And can anyone also tell me about the medical and uniform fitting as Ive got mine on 31st Jan?


Thanks

Faye

Hello Faye,

In the medical I had an eye sight test, hearing test, urine sample, was checked by the doc and had a lung capacity test. As well as my BMI being checked.
Training was good and bad, good because you meet lots of new people and learn alot of interesting stuff. Bad because it involves alot of power point presentations and also because it's alot to take in. However for me it was only 7 weeks and that went very quickly. Once you get on area its a different story and your learning curve goes through the roof!!
You've got lots of fun ahead!!!
