Looks like some may need to tidy up their english skills also.

I have a question regarding the required first aid certificate. The MFS website clearly states that it must contain the code HLTFA301B code which i had but has now expired. When looking to book to update it, the code is now HLTFA311A and they claim that it supersedes the other one. I have tried to ask the MFS but cant get a response. Does anyone know if they will accept this code and maybe they just need to update the website?? Id hate to turn up to the testing and they tell me they wont accept it!! Cheers.

Yes, HLTFA311A is the current version of the Apply First Aid course (formerly known as Senior First Aid) and supersedes HLTFA301C which superseded HLTFA301B. From what you say MFS are a few versions behind on their website.

Yeah no retirements and no money in the budget. But only a rumour. Could change, late year intake perhaps if things change end of financial year

If they say monitor the website from July, you would think they were possibly planning a recruitment later in the year. I hope so anyway!!

I Got a pre Christmas deal and paid $1990. I would'nt pay full price for it. The course wasn't really what i expected so i was a little disappointed. Time will tell if it was worth while i guess!!

Yeap!! it's actually gone up to over 5K now which is crazy!! I was recommended to do it by a mate who is in the MFS. Might sound crazy to some but i'm pretty keen to get in so if this helps in some way then ill say it was worth it. Heaps of people in the MFB and CFA do it.

I had it recommended to me as well, the price was high but if it makes your chances of getting in better, why not? I decided that i was not in a financial position to do the course nor could i afford the time. Good luck to you, i hope it all pays off.
I just want to help

So the rumours are starting to fly again. 

word is Training Dept have been asked by those upstairs how they would manage 100 recruits?

5 drill squads back to back, or with overlap as has happened recently?

I hope this is true, It makes sense that it would be a large intake, They haven't done one for a couple of years now.
