Re: WAPOL

They've changed, apparently, from when I did them. Easier from what I've been told. Someone else who's done it recently will probably be able to tell you, but the ones I did in 2013 were not that...

Re: WAPOL 2014 Results

Re: WAPOL 2014 Results

How's everyone going? This thread seemed to die a death in August with no updates as to how everyone got on.

Re: WAPOL 2015 Waiting Room

It seems that from previous years, the response from WAPOL to enquiries was 'we currently have no plans..........' And within a few weeks/months, recruitment opened up again.

Re: WAPol 2014 PPE physical preparation.

A WORD OF WARNING PEOPLE. In London they MAKE you keep your whole foot on the floor for the sit up. It may have been different in Aus testing Pincher, but feet have to stay flat on the floor and not...

Re: WAPol 2014 PEE preparation

Don't know about a pass mark, I thought I'd flunked it on the maths but clearly not. I think they judge it on overall performance and take the top xxx through to the next stage.
