As a C3S Cpl currently at a training depot, will I still be employable when I return to the field army? At present I'm a Calnsman RSI and have yet to convert to Bowman. My unit cannot release me for the 52 days worth of courses required, and if they could, it would leave my training team short of a section commander. As far as I know, the 2 year conversion contract with Augusta Westland will have run out by the time I leave this establishment, and I would like to know how I will be employed in a C3S troop and how the conversion process will work for those in my position. Will my lack of Bowman skills hamper promotion to Sgt? and future career prospects Being outside of the corps makes it hard to get a straight answer! If anyone else is in the same boat, or has any info or expertise on the matter, I would greatly appreciate your views. Cheers.
