Soon I will be taking the Ammo Tech Selection Board; I am told it is pretty tough, so I am considering Combat Engineer as an alternative, should I fail the selection for AT. What is the likelihood of being able to specialise in Bomb Disposal, is the intake quite large, or is it as small as the intake for ammo tech? how long would it be to reach Bomb Disposal Specialist, since I will have training as Combat Engineer and then 'Tradesman' training to complete first, would I have to wait a few years before trying to specialise as a Bomb Disposal Specialist? Are specialists chosen on merit? length of service? qualifications? Lots of questions I know, any help would be great!
