Welcome to the Team
I have a question regarding entry into the service. Where would be the right place(or person) to ask this question?. Maybe you could answer it?.

I don't want to waste a recruiter's time if i am too old but i have questions. Myself and a nephew of mine want to join, my nephew has questions regarding minimum education level.
