Cheers Lay and Bear,

Bear you’ve been an absolute god send when it’s come to help mate thanks a lot! Put my mind at ease so many times, I have faith in myself that I can do this. And Lay thanks for that, I thought you were going to tell me we had to do everything as a group haha. I’ll update you all tomorrow! I’m assuming it’s a good 4 hour jobby? Starts at 12:45.

Quick question while we’re here Bear is if I pass the ARC what comes first the vetting or fitness?

Sorry it’s me again, regarding asking questions I have some questions that I’d like to ask privately, how do I go about this if we’re all together?

WHEN YOU PASS.....you will go onto the merit list, once picked from the merit list, you will receive a conditional offer of employment which you either accept or decline, following an acceptance, you will be required to complete vetting forms online, book a fitness test, and complete an occupational health questionnaire.

As vetting takes a number of weeks, you are highly likely to have completed your fitness and health questionnaire before vetting is done and dusted.

In terms of speaking privately to someone tomorrow, there will be a ‘moderator’ who you can see and speak with, both verbally and through a type chat function, so don’t worry. It’s really well organised pal, honestly, I was bricking it but was very happy with the whole experience. Have yourself a bottle/glass of water handy, pen and paper.

Regarding the help, give over man, I’m a total novice too, only learnt through experience, as members, if we can make life easier by assisting others then why not ! Get it done lad !
