Hi Gpats
Yep, not much action happening!
Have heard that the 2019 recruitment will continue soon.
Not sure if there will be a new recruit drive this year.

How is everyone tracking?

I had PAT2 this week and passed. Medical next week, then uniform fittings.

Anyone know how long after medical you’re likely to hear anything?

From my understanding there’s a squad starting mid April.

PS- Not sure about anyone else, but this forum only loads when I’m using mobile date. Doesn’t work on wifi! Weird!

Im in the 'keep fit' too.

Im at the stage where I just want an email saying 'pat1' or no. Its hard on the whole family when it feels like your life is on hold for the last year.

Yeah it’s tough being kept in the dark for so long. At least you know your Psych test responses are desirable, so should you do them again you can be consistent.

I’m through to the PAT2 next week. Would most people agree that if you pass PAT2 then you’re pretty much in? They would probably have a few extras that may be held over for a future squad I guess.

Congratulations guys, well done on moving on to PAT2. Hope all goes well, you're close now - very exciting.

When did you find out you'd passed the interview?

Found out last Thursday afternoon, fair bit earlier than I’d expected so was a big surprise.

Hey guys
Yep, made it through to PAT2 (which is in a couple of weeks), then have medicals booked in for the week after. Starting to get nervous now! Good luck to all still in the pool.

Hi all
Anyone have any idea as to how many still left in the interview stage? I had my interview this week. I heard that there may be a squad starting in September from this current interview batch, anyone know any different?

Ah right, thanks Left Foot Snap.

Hopefully my eye test this afternoon is 6/6, otherwise it’s laser eye surgery time!

Hi all

Does anyone know the rules surrounding glasses? I.e. I think the medical states that firefighters need 6/6 Vision, but what about those people who wear glasses? I’m currently going through some eye tests and would hate to miss out on a spot due to requiring glasses!

Although they must have had a lot of applicants that struggled to follow the instructions properly in the past - probably makes more work for them on the admin side when someone doesn't do everything properly.

Hi all,
How has everyone found the testing so far?
I had mine on Thursday, found it quite draining.

I also found it interesting how some people left after about 45 minutes of the psych testing... must have raced through it!

Any ideas as to when we'll find out if we're through to PAT 1?
