Electronics or Avionics Technician, is there a waiting list?

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Warning, newbie post here, please save the abuse for my second or third post, lol.

    I've been considering joining to become and electronics technician, but I've come across a couple of posts that suggest that the army has more of these than they know what to do with already and that there is some sort of long waiting list to get onto the training courses.

    Does anybody here know if this is true?
     
  2. Seems a bit odd as on another web site they are moaning that REME has insufficient manpower to maintain the Apache.

    The suggestion is that it is REME's fault that the AAC is getting poor press for having only 8 aircraft available in Afghanistan.

    Can only suggest you speak to the army careers people.
     
  3. Cheers, I suppose I'll have to stop wasting time and ask the right people eventually. Off I go to the AFCO!
