It varies, I found out I passed my MMI on 30th May and had email to book DMI on the 19th July, the first date available was the 29th July which I took lol

Well, had my medical yesterday. Nearly all good but the ecg showed a Right axis deviation so the scan has to be viewed by a cardiologist and if they say it's ok I get the golden F1 (opposed to the temp unfit I'm on atm). May also be referred for further tests! Bit of a kick in the preverbials at the very last!

Don’t worry yourself too much mate. I had the same, and within two days the Cardiologist has replied stating that everything was ok.

On the October 14th course, but still have yet to receive any joining instructions. Should I ring them up on Monday?

I received my JIs 14 days before and schedule 10 days before I believe? I seem to recall them saying not to expect them before these dates?

Does GWR make sure that everyone on the training course passes their training? Or is it every man for themselves ? Lol

Every man/woman/gender neutral for themselves ;)

They’ll do their best to help you if your attitude is right of course (I’d expect nothing less as they’re investing a lot of money in you), but ultimately people can fail at certain stages/assessments and have done I’m sure. It is quite a scary prospect :E:{

Everyone helps each other too of course.

Rang today and told Cardiologist said all good! I can, finally, look forward to training.

Just received my invite to the DMI. There was an available date next week but that doesn’t give me enough time to get the day off work so I’ve booked the 22nd.

Thanks guys. Does anyone know roughly how many roles they are employing for?

It's difficult to say. When I had my DMI I was told there wasn't a set number to fill, if I passed the interview and they felt I'd be a good fit with the depot, I'd be put in the talent pool.

I applied for Plymouth and one of the interviews was at a hotel here, but I couldn’t make that one. My interview is in Newton Abbot
