    Joining UK Armed Forces

    I first investigated the possibility based solely on family considerations. I've applied for and been accepted as a Weapons System Operator (Crewman). Would be a Loadmaster in the CAF. I'm a Traffic Tech with six years exp as a C17 LM.

    Joining UK Armed Forces

    I received my offer of service to join the Royal Air Force from the CAF last week. It’s a fairly streamlined process and happens relatively quickly, all things considered. If anyone else is thinking about it and looking for information on the process, let me know.

    Re: CEOTP 2019

    I emailed my PSO about 10 days ago and at that time they said the selection boards were conducted on 25 March and offers should be out “this week or next week, depending on how busy DPGR is.” I still don’t know of anyone hearing anything about their CEOTP application at this point.

    University Training Plan NCM (UTPNCM) 2005 - 2018 [Merged]

    Earlier this week, the WPSO at 8 Wing sent out an email to all units advising that the message was still "a few weeks away", but to start the application process now in order to not miss the cutoff dates.

    Should I stay or should I go?
