No, I don't, there are intakes this month and in Feb next year, so I'd expect them to be looking at at least one or two more courses in 2018.  Given the process takes at least several months I would thing they'd open a window in the spring.  Follow their twitter feed for info

Thanks every one.

Has anyone been through the process recently?

How long roughly does it take from them opening to the first day of training?

TIA

I applied October 18. Had expressed interest that May, and was sent an application within the week, but opted to wait a few months for another window.

Sift took about a month or so, telephone interview was two weeks after that. Was sent to AC roughly two weeks after that, and had my final interview just before Christmas.

I'm now with a conditional offer subject to vetting, fitness and medical. Have had to postpone the fitness for personal reasons so I'm on hold atm, but they were talking about a March intake in my interview.

From what I've seen it's a big and multi-faceted operation involving communication between different departments, and all aspects of the process probably vary in timespan. Plus different forces have different ways of doing things. I'm hopefully soon to be GMP.

I think mine has been pretty expedient so far based on other accounts.

Thanks for your reply. I was hoping that someone who has recently applied for DPP would be able to give me a rough idea.

It's good to see how the process works across different forces though. Good luck with the remaining steps.
