Cheers guys!!

Was easier than I expected, I mean... I was still very puffed out and could feel it in my legs after 😅 but they are so great at supporting you.

Well funny story bearguy it was me and this other guy doing it together but the poor lad wasn’t allowed to go ahead with it as he didn’t pass on on his blood pressure, so they asked if I wanted to do it alone or wait for the next person turning up, I decided to wait and my mate walks in 😂 so I was there a while, but I definitely preferred doing it with others

The instructor does the first 4 laps with you to set the pace and then let’s your know wether you need to slow down or speed up as your going.

Nothing yet, I got the conditional offer and accepted and proceeded to enter my uniform sizes but then the box where it asks me to book a slot says there are non available and to keep checking back, I rang SSCL to check im doing it right and they confirmed and said to just keep checking every few hours as new one will pop up

Ah right okay I may have a wait or a long travel 🤣 if it’s a long travel I’ll make the journey I don’t mind as long as I can get it done, I suppose with social distancing also it must be making thing difficult for recruitment

When I went for mine we had awful snow the week before I was due to go when I got there the instructor said a lady had drove 5 hours to her test in this bad snow and the person doing the test couldn't get in so she had to drive back home and come back the week after they said they are very full at the minute

Just a quick update, I’ve got my fitness test around the 2nd week in March and it’s around 1 and half hours away from where I live so not the other side of the country! How long has everyone’s vetting took to get back? I’ve done all the online forms and sent them back

Vetting is waiting game really mate, it can take up to 12 weeks, so I would just have 12 weeks in my mind, depending on if you have filled everything correctly and how quick they get through it and potentially if they need to get staff in quick could be quicker... but your looking between 4-12 weeks
