  • JoinPSNI website updated.

    As for the GV, multiple friends in. Stated they’ve been told no assessments due to covid and social distancing. All learning is done online

    What about fitness and firearms training do you know?

    I don’t want to be like joe wicks with a firearm in my living room to be honest

    I’m going to give recruitment a call as we were not told this when we received the call for start dates




  • Don’t get me wrong, you most likely are correct with the 1/2 week learning online. But as far as I’m aware few of those are yet to actually step foot into gv

    Let’s hope everything sorts itself out and everyone can get into GV after their online learning.

    Just wouldn’t feel the same doing all the learning at home and personally I don’t think I would learn as much in a home environment so fingers crossed!

    I contacted recruitment and they said everyone will find out exactly what’s happening at induction in regards to the online learning at the start.




  • Lads! I got a call! Reserve intake for August start of someone drops out ����

    No offence, chum, but as someone in GV at present, that's nonsense.

    I’m only going by as to what I was told. They are only in recent and they’ve been told it’s going to be learning online for the moment. Your course could absolutely be different.

    I'm in GV atm as well and as MrChew says, it is nonsense. It's only the first week that is online the rest is done at the college.

    Fair enough, maybe someone who has had their induction recently will pop along and clear it up for the benefit of others.




  • I have been to my induction recently and was told it's the usual intake day then 1 week online learning and then back to class after that

    You've just heard it from the horse's mouth...

    No, heard it from someone who heard it from someone else and is incorrect.




  • Does it still come on your credit check if they the vetting team have looked, what is the name of the check? Admin remove if security issues for it. Using experian

    Mines through and there wasn’t anything on my credit report. Maybe next month there will be tho




  • Has anyone experienced delays to vetting due to living in mainland UK or being ex forces?
    I find I'm waiting an eternity whilst others seem to be passing in no time at all

    What I hear through the grapevine is if you lived abroad or had loads of addresses can take longer, but nobody knows for sure unless ur the vetting officer I suppose.

    Mine only showed up on the paid version of Experian, I did the 30 day trial but after 30 days I couldn’t see it on the free versions of Experian or clearscore

    It’s really obvious, honestly can’t miss it haha. When did you send vetting away?

    Good stuff thanks- and about 2 weeks if even. being very hopeful

    My credit check took around 2 months to be processed I think and my vetting was 3.5 months but it’s all very unpredictable as some peoples are passing at lightening speed.

    For people who have received their packs in the post did you notice the incorrect pay scales being sent out?

    It does. It showed on my report today. It's very obvious that it's them doing the check.

    What was incorrect about the pay scales?




  • What was incorrect about the pay scales?

    It referred to the 2018 pay scales and not the 2020 ones that are on the joinpsni site. Quite a difference too, going to have to clarify it on induction




  • Maybe this has already been answered but those who have recently got their vetting forms and starting the next stages, what was a rough merit number? Just trying to gauge a timeframe

    350-400. Pca done, vetting forms sent away.

  • Looks like some of the comments may have been deleted in the upgrade. Not a fan of the new look. Does anyone know what merit range they are issuing vetting forms to.
