Hi guys, basically I have reached a point in my life where I want to follow my dream; something I did not do when younger for a number of reasons. I want to seriously have a bash at becoming a commissioned officer (prob withing RLC as a Troop Commander). Here's the crack, I'm 29, not 30 till Christmas so just within the are requirement for TC in RLC, but don't have the basic GCSE or A Level quals. I do have other quals though; GCSE x 11 (4 graded A-C; Maths was a D) AS Level Business Studies GNVQ L2 Business NVQ L2 Sales NVQ L4 HR Management (only the 2 units in Training & Development) NEBS Introductory Cert in Management NEBS Certificate in Management And in 2004 I became a Member of the Chartered Management Institute - the academic standard required is a Management qualification at degree level with at least 3 years exp I have work experiance as a dept manager within a multi million pound organisation as well as having been a Director of 2 companies with up to 30 employees - just to give you an idea of my background. I have received a number of conflicting opinions on my chances, from a Brig who said "not a chance, without GCSE and A levels" to two commissioned friends who have said that the experiance, Chartered membership and management quals would combine to outweigh the lack of "right" grade GCSE and A levels. Does anyone have any experiance of the qualification process or requirements? http://www.managers.org.uk/ http://www.bdu.staffs.com/course2.html Any advise; thanks a lot.
