What's the BARB Test ???



Youd probably be better off posting this in the training wing. Congratulations I believe its a fairly high score and you should have pretty much every trade open to you. Good luck

Consider your choices wisely young fella. Broadly speaking, you can consider SYSENGTECH as similar to a Telephone or Radio Engineer, IS ENG as IT specialist, & EW, well, ask them.

I joined as TeleTech (SYS) which is now streamed with SYSENGTECH. At that time IS ENG didn't exist but is increasingly coming to the fore as you would expect in our ever increasing digital age.

Both trades offer advancement to Supervisor level as either Foreman of Signals (FofS) or Supervisor Information Systems (Supvr IS). EW Supvr is known as (Supvr R) - Radio.

Common theory is that both trades (Tech & IS Eng) will merge within the next couple of years anyway. This remains to be seen, though it wouldn't come as a surprise to many of us.

Best of luck,

No probs mate! I know of a specialist unit you may like! They're called 3 Para Mortars.

You could always ask to join 49 Para as well!
