Re: Training Equipment

Thanks Taff

A few more weeks for me yet but just wanted to start getting prepared

I will be staying away as it’s over an hour and half away - is food etc provided do you know? Or is it a case of buying and claiming back?

Re: POELT Finished

Oh my god how frustrating literally days before you start

I think the level 2 is very similar to what we have already had to complete through the recruitment process. X
