    Does anybody know much about the online learning?
    Will a place at Garnerville be subject to passing tests online? Also if the online learning takes 4 weeks and the first intake is supposedly the end of May, then when will we be told to start the online learning? Thanks

    The online learning is only 25hrs. Would expect you'll be told end April, which is when you would have to tell your boss to go jump

    Yeah, your start date is going to be put back! The high achievers results will be out friday. There could be a big trolley queue at holywell, gransha, muckamore etc!

    Think everyone through so far are destined to the first draft of recruits.

    Just got the email, took me a minute to figure out what it was for! I was thinking jeez what did I sign up for and when?

    Got the same email.

    At least this will occupy the brain a bit!

    Would I be wrong in assuming this means vetting has cleared and our details have been passed on?

    Yes you would be wrong. They say if we fail medical vetting or substance misuse our online learning account will be closed.

    Did anyone notice the email stated course number was 01-14. Anyone else think this means we are in the first intake subject to passing everything else?

    Yup because the further info I was requested to send for vetting is only being put in the post today!

    We'll just have to wait until after getting AC and hopefully completing PCA before this email by the looks of it

    Got the emails also. Did have to check twice thinking is this spam lol. Got hopes up that it meant vetting was cleared but then read that. Aw well least it's something else :)

    Will the online learning have tests to do? Should it be something to worry about?

    It doesn't really matter one way or the other. I presume there must be some sort of 'testing' involved in order to complete it, but I would doubt it will be anything too difficult for us.
