    That won’t matter, as long as long as you physically fit, you will be fine. Don’t crash diet, you’ll just make yourself ill and probably won’t lose that much weight. I joined with a couple of rugby guys, their BMI was well over 30, but they were able to show they were fit.

    Height, weight, blood pressure, pulse, vision test, hearing test, urine test including drug test, session with the doctor where they will do a top to toe examination and take your medical history. Don't worry nothing intimate!!
  3. Help reguarding standard entry test

    I did my SET in 2011, but didn't get through the assessment centre, then applied again in 2015 and didn't have to do them.
  4. Dermatitis and Medical

    Hi Steven, having worked in occupational health before joining the Police I would highly doubt if contact dermatitis would cause you any difficulties in joining :)

    Have an awareness what it is about and what's in it but you won't need to learn it word for word.

    Good luck with your application mate! Don't worry about the fitness at all, as well as there being the PE at college, they also do fitness classes like circuits in the evening run by some of the instructors and students - plenty of ways to improve on fitness when you're there!

    Make sure you wear them in before you bull them though or else it will crack!

    100% go the night before and get yourself settled in mate! Most people arrive between 7pm-8pm, gives you a good amount of time to unpack and get your bearings. I wouldn't say that week 1 is bad but it is a bit of information and brain overload! You might feel a bit overwhelmed (or at least I did!) at first but you'll quickly settle in. Once you get the first couple of days over and done with and get into your uniform you'll be grand!!

    You normallly get one session of PE each week, sometimes more, they last about an hour. Some running, circuit work, quite often outside, think we were only inside a couple of times. There's a gym that you can use in your free time (which I think has just got renovated) and some of the instructors quite often run a variety of classes in the evening

    I had a similar experience, I used one of my customers as a character reference, they had no issues with that

    Can't remember what it stands for but its first aid training, like CPR and recovery position

    NewNaw are thinking of British Transport Police fitness test? They train at Tulli too but their fitness levels are a lot less. For all ages/gender they only need to get level 5.3.
