Interesting to see PAT1 not being held until late Janurary. If they are expecting so many to apply like rumoured, would have thought they would want people that are fit now instead of giving people 2 months to get fit.

Hi
yes had an issue of getting reset after entering about half the info in so had to start again and found that the space for some answers was quite limited.  Took a while but got it in.  How did you go?

Has anyone else had a problem with submitting the application?  Iv filled out everything and clicked submit application but gets stuck on this screen! Unsure if it has gone through or not.

Did people get an email to say its gone through or did something come up?

If that's true and there's only around 1500 people, I'm in for sure..


Is that number from a solid source..

When do you think we might find out about the dates for the beep test??

I spoke to a bloke who knows a bloke who said just over 1000 made it through to the beep test with correct paper work, and the beep tests would start on the 12th January, so we should see our letters soon :?

Plenty of time. You cant run. You must walk along side the officer. I guess if u take a long time in the tunnel crawl thing u could struggle.If u get to pat2 jyst take your time and dont drop anything, especially in the gas suit at end, gloves make it hard to grip drums
