So's everyone else! Have a look at a job spec, see if you can do it or something similar and word your CV using the experience you have.

class one radio op = Mobile phone operator
class one RTG = mobile phone operator using internet ( T-mobile webnwalk)
class one RS op = service centre operator

Were you actually all three trades?

Surely you could only have been two of them. (RTG and RS or Rad Op and RS).

If you were a Class 1 RTG, you would know that the skills learnt as a Class 1 Rad Op were irrelevant, as they are part of RTG.

You also need to look at what skills you have picked up during service. ie, have you any satcom experience?

No drama Neemo.

Just a strange question you asked.

If the signals resettlement page doesn't work, PM me, I'll have a route through my CV. It is a few years old and probably out of date now.

(For RTG only, not RS, don't know what they do.)

Hello mate,
Give one of the Regional Resettlement Centres a call. They all have an information room where you can use the internet for C.V prep etc. Contained in these rooms is a big fcuk off ring binder with all military job specs already converted to Civ speak.
Had a look through the Sigs one a few weeks ago and found it pretty useful.
To find what actual qualifications your trade may attract, have a quick scan at the army recruitment web site to see what they are offering the kids these days.
