Hey there i was just wondering about a few things before i joined the RE. I really have wanted to join the RE all my life and i was juts wondering about the qualifications i would come away with for later in life back in civi street. I have a gnvq level 2 in engineering ( fitting and maintenance ), but im looking at joining the corp as a electrician or a carpenter or would even consider something like a bricky or plasterer. i was just wondering if i completed these skills would i be able to use them in civi world? would i get any qualifications out of them that are needed to be alowed on builing sites around the uk? Also i was just wondering what life is like while in the corp, what the other lads are like? general life really as it is a big decision obviously and i was also just wondering what the training is like and out on operations e.g. afghanistan do you become involved in many fights with the enemy? sorry thats abit long n boring to read but i just wanted things clearing up thanks alot.
