Design Draughtsman.

Hi everyone,

Don't mean to be another annoying 'newbie' but i just thought that you lot will be able to help me.
Im currently studying A levels and when i finish i'm looking into joining the RE as a design draughtsman and i just had a few queries:

How long is training including Phase 1?
When i train will i deploy on operations like traditional infantry? As in will i deploy for 6 months patrolling like an infantry soldier?
Will i ever use my trade once i am qualified or will i just act as a combat soldier and once in a while be asked by my CO to do my job?

Cheers guys
