What process does your wing follow to get a member of staff into uniform as an NCO?
In my Wing a candidate has an interview with their sector commander, then attends mandatory AVIP/ Pre uniform courses over a few weekends where they are assessed for their teaching ability.
After a few months they will then have their board.
They are appointed but then they must attend a wing pre-ATF course before going to Cranwell.
An ex CWO I know has recently aged out and has been appointed as Sgt (ATC). He booked his ATF course for next week, which was initially accepted. But he has been asked to cancel his attendance as he had not attended a pre-ATF course. Is this a mandatory requirement or a rule for my wing?
