I can't remember the exact figure but I'm 17st 11 and remember seeing a figure during the application process that gave me around a stone of leeway.


yes it is 18st 11,for sure i know that but was just wondering if anyone on here had atually done the pole training at yarnfield which is what the harness is for and if your weight is tested,for example my harness at work has a SWL but if it fits comfortably and safely it doesnt matter about the exact weight

Not done the poles yet however there's a big bloke in my team think he said he was nearly 18st so as long as your under the limit you should be fine I think.

Pretty much first week has been admin, few health and safety lessons and driving assessment. Can't comment on the rooms yet we stayed In a hotel as Yarnfield was full. I'm certain you will have the same room all week though. Images you get a new room every week depends if your doing the full 12 weeks at Yarnfield or closer to home.

Nice one mate, thanks for the info again, at least you never forgot about us like the 1st lot haha. Hope I don't get the instructor you got!

Was hoping it was transit customs, hopefully the same.

Only seems right to give some feedback I know I had questions I wondered before I started ! Hopefully not mate, they are much nicer than the vivaros I drove much bigger in the front. The kitting in the back is amazing.

Bit of a early finish on the Friday! What time were you starting/finish Monday to Thursday if you don't mind me asking. Thanks again for the feedback, good to have some insight into what we'll be doing
