AFCO's are open seven days a week aren't they? :-? If you haven't got time to go in person then why not give your local AFCO a ring instead of the national recruitment line? I imagine the staff there will be more informed and will tell you the same thing on the phone as if you asked in person. ;)

Clicked the link just to see what Sisyphus was referring too...... soon figured out. :o I know you wouldn't expect porn to be on there Sisyphus but the URL is crazyshit.com so it's not likely to be appropriate for younger people.
