I've managed to get my application about 8 months ago and still haven't filled it in, but i'm not thinking about joining the marines untill I'm 18 or somthing.

I got my application begginineg of august, but had to write a letter to my former embass releasing me of service so that i can join so when i hear from them i hand my application in, and still need to get really fit.

how long are the tests (on average) after you send application in?

Yeah I had to show mine to my AFCO and also was advised to take it on my PRMC (but they didnt look at them there). I was also been told on my PRMC that I need to take my certificates with me on training or get copies of them or else we will have to sit the NAMET tests. If I was you mate, I'd try to get copies.

Welcome to the forums by the way Welzy! Good luck in your application.
