Just letting you guys know I rang South Wales Police today about our intake (for the east) and they said no intake date has been set, there waiting for a date from the chief constable. Doesn't look like its any time soon :unsure:

For those people that have passed all the stages, would they be asked to do any stages again such as the medical or fitness? Or is it a case of once you have passed, thats it?

I wouldn’t like to guess on this as its going to be down to training and HR I think. I'd say it maybe a case of how much time has passed though. We have to re take our fitness test every 12 months during OST refresher. I'd just hang in there and see what comes out of it. Fitness shouldn’t be a problem if it does need to be re taken as it should be maintained but if you don’t need to do it then just think of it as a bonus that you don’t have to go back to the training centre

okay thanks for that.

Are you in training at the moment? I'm trying to find out when the training would be if it were to start in the next few months. I know some forces do Saturdays only but then also have a mix of evenings and Saturdays. Does anyone know how the training works at the moment? :aok:

Nope, Im operational :)

It depends on the time of year and what the trainers operational requirements are. Generally every other weekend but this isn’t cast in stone

Attestation date is 21/03/2011 - so hopefully right after that date!

We've only just got half way, it's been great... but now the really intresting stuff is kicking in! We've also just completed all of our NCALT topics (those who manged to register, still having minor issues).

There's 13 of us going west, with about 14 more going east/central I believe! We've been branded as the 'Western 13' (sounds like a bad outlaw movie!).

*note to those people on the waiting list: heard a rumour that as soon as the trainers are free after we've been attested then the intake should kick in! Obviously this could change due to ongoing budget cuts etc.*
