From what I've managed to discover, busy internet times can affect the ability to download the form.
Several considerations - attempt it during an off peak period (very early morning/late at night), consider connecting direct to your router by ethernet cable rather than wi-fi,
Make sure you're clicking on "SC In Progress" rather than on the individual sections as they will not load individually.
You need Internet Explorer 7 or above and Adobe Reader v 9 or above. Don't use any other browsers such as Google Chrome, Firefox etc. as it may not be fully compatable.
Ah OK, that shouldn't be too much of a problem then. 6-8 weeks ain't too bad. Just hope they get it up and running soon.
I'm definitely hoping to get clearance before PRMC because I'm hoping to go on the cancellation list instead of getting assigned a troop, which I'm guessing as you could start anytime you will need to have the clearance before you can go on that list...
