    If you are joining as regular (full time) then no such thing as holding troop ???..the rest is right in the basic process of joining though.

    It may vary unit to unit, but Leeds allow you to attend HT once you are in the system, application wise. You just won’t get any pay until you attest.

    Most dets won't let you start holding troop until you have passed your medical. Safety reasons.

    I haven't heard of people being allowed to start prior to that.

    They shouldn't let you attend as if you injure yourself they won't be covered
