  • Registered Users Posts: 206 ✭✭Jalapeno peppers


    I don't know if they have a fitness range for the guys! Didn't see anything today- decathlon is great for both but it was so cheap in primark for tops I just had to stock up!

    If you take a look in the 14.05 campaign news thread and read through the history there you might see what scores people are down to?

    I think those who got through the first batch of processing are around 78-77 AC score. I am not 100% on this.

    Started doing a bit more fitness this week too!

    dont worry about small logos, or a few white stripes on your training gear. As long as its black and not offensive it will be fine! Congrats to everyone starting soon! It will be good craic!

    Has anyone been able to contact the college administration?

    If anyone is looking training gear all in black go to website kit king, range of shorts tshirts and black socks with no logos or colours on them

    Guys what we wearing to the induction? Im thinking shirt tie and jumper...what are the rest of you gonna wear?
    Yeah i got thru to admin the other day...to let them know of my car registration


  • Registered Users Posts: 10 FV4034_Seraph


    I cant get through the number we were given. I've called at least 12 times and got nothing, I've even went through the non-emergency number and still got no answer. Need some help please.


  • Registered Users Posts: 301 ✭✭KevBo2015


    Call the number at the bottom of the letter and ask them to put you through to the police training college? Strange they are not answering, maybe the guards on the phones are on lunch haha!

    It's suits for guys, don't be the one who turns up too casual as you will stand out to the trainers


  • Registered Users Posts: 206 ✭✭Jalapeno peppers


    I'm going for a suit- no tie obviously :)


  • Registered Users Posts: 49 geezoh


    I have a stubble in my photos and its a blue background...should i go and get some with no stubble and a white background


  • Registered Users Posts: 206 ✭✭Jalapeno peppers


    I'd probably go for white background just to be safe I know it needs to be white cream or grey for a passport


  • Registered Users Posts: 49 geezoh


    Yeah just got some new ones today


  • Registered Users Posts: 4 Dream big


    Anyone know roughly yet how many got into the first squad yet?

    I believe the first intake is a pretty standard size of squad, 37-38 people I think got offered a place in the training.

    Seen a bit on TV tonight, really bizarre the different range of ages of the Rookies. Fair play to them though, with all their mistakes,or things they could have handled better on screen etc

    How is everyone getting on? Hard to think it isn't long until the start after all the months of talk!


  • Registered Users Posts: 206 ✭✭Jalapeno peppers


    Getting on the best :) shopping list bought and online learning done just need to revise it all now! Super excited to get started :)


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 32 Red_bull


    Obviously you aren't working right up to it?? I have purchased a nice new iron in a fetching pink/purple! Any tips on ironing cloths??


  • Registered Users Posts: 301 ✭✭KevBo2015


    Getting along dead on just about finished the online learning. Have bought nothing yet haha, I've a shopping list for this weekend.

    I don't think you could put 40 hours into the online learning realistically, 10 would be more like it..?


  • Registered Users Posts: 206 ✭✭Jalapeno peppers


    Where to buy an ironing cloth? You can get them on eBay for a few quid or if you want to make yourself known to me in there you can use away at mine- if you mean tips about ironing I'm hopeless and can't be of much use :P


  • Registered Users Posts: 206 ✭✭Jalapeno peppers


    And nah I left work not too long after the call :) been loving life!

    Just get a tea towel that isn't fluffy. it does the same job. It's just handy for your trousers (the iron directly on them makes them melt).
