Army Diver

#1
I'm considering joining the RE in the North West area and wondered if there is an opportunity to become a diver once my training is complete.

Cheers.

Yes of course. Sign here. (He did say "driver"?)

Simple answer: No chance.

If you want to become an Army Diver you need to join the Regulars. However if getting wet is your thing the RE TA do have both Commando Engineers (based in Hull) and Amphibious Engineers.

There is also the opportunity to gain civilian diving qualifications with BSAC through the Adventurous Training scheme but for you unit to put you forward for these courses you will have to be very much in their good books.

Alternatively I've heard the RMR and RNR both like to go paddling...

The Royal Engineer diver is commercially trained to exacting standards to a depth of 50m and has to complete normal sapper tasks such as demolitions using explosives, welding or concreting underwater; divers receive extra pay and responsibilities.

The Role:



Royal Engineers Diver
Cpl Grier
Royal Engineer Divers are trained alongside the Royal Navy's divers and are expected to carry out underwater tasks such as reconnaissance, demolition, construction, searches, concreting, recovery and using hydraulic tools. All this is conducted in zero visibility in all conditions all over the world.

The Army Diving course is open to Royal Engineers who have completed all phases of training and have been posted to an Engineer Regiment that has a dive team.
The Skills:

You will be commercially trained to exacting standards to carry out your engineering tasks to a depth of 50m and will constantly train throughout your career to learn new skills and techniques in the area of military diving. The Army Diver is a specialist qualification and brings with it the benefits of additional pay and considerable responsibilities.

Ooh get her ;)

Nah things get a little feisty in here I've noticed, so don't take too much offence at people making little jokes. Sense of humour tends to be essential.

I have to admit that when I skim-read the threads that had been added to recently, I genuinely mistook it for 'driver' and was about to post 'OMG Don't do it!!one'.

Great attitude. A harmless joke that hurts no-one and you go off on one. Your mental state is unsuitable for diving. As a matter of interest what exactly can you do in only 10 minutes that would turn Cuddles green with envy?

Someone has had a sense of humour failure!

Obviously not blowing shit up and making big guns go bang if his original post is anything to go by.
