I have just been appointed as a call handler at the northern command centre and will be starting the training course in the middle of June. As far as specials are concerned, I had a meeting with Mark Desforges a couple of weeks ago which was really interesting and a bit of an eye-opener. Still filling out the application form at the moment (its given me a few headaches), also had many a fun afternoon trying to chase up my vaccination history. Hopefully getting it sent off this week, so i'll update this when i hear some more news.

Even though people who read this cant reply on here, if you want to talk then just leave me a personal message and i'll get back to you.

Starting my call handler training course on monday at courtland road which should take up a lot of my time! Things seem to have moved quite quickly so far, so just got to hope that my vetting is sorted without any hitches and then with a bit of luck I should be on the next intake :whistle: Just need to step up my fitness regime! Because I don't think running once every other day is going to cut it!

got my medical moved forward to 9am yesterday morning. And even though I had to have a manual audiometric test I managed to get through it ok. So its just a case of waiting for someone from the specials to get in touch with me and give me a starting date :whistle:
