So after all these months of anticipation and the form filling of Friday, today we had our first real taste of what the next few months will be like. After introductory sessions with the head of ground training and our course mentor we knuckled down to it...
The first lessons, this being an ab initio course, are simply covering the basics to ensure that we're all singing from the same hymn sheet; it also gives people who have been out of classroom based education for a while the chance dust off the rust patches. The instructors so far have been a right laugh - no boring droning lessons for us it seems, more an endless stream of anecdotes and irreverent humour with some information thrown in on the side.
So there we go, just a quick update on the progression of things after day 1.
