INFO: changing trades during Phase 1 and 2/3(RE,RLC,RSIGS,AAC) training

#1
I've got a bit of experience with this as a current recruit(lizard, chippy c*** etc.) so I can give you all some information.

A few people in my troop have requested to change from AAC to RE, RE to AAC, RLC to RE and RE to IN Corps

Basically how it works is you have until about week 7 of phase 1 to make it clear to your platoon commander that you wish to change, in a letter explaining why.

This is usually sucessful, however it depends on the trade, many people in the RLC as a Supp Specialist are being told; no, you can't change because the trade is pinchpoint and they need to keep you in that role...

However 1 pinchpoint trade to another is much more likely, and a non-pinchpoint trade to another generic trade is very likely to go through.

Otherwise we are being told you have to wait until AFTER phase 2 to request a transfer... however changing trades WITHIN Corps is a lot easier, but still not always possible.


Anyone wishing to change from RSigs Engineer/Operater etc. to EW operator is basically never going to happen, the officer in charge of it is a bit of a dick and the EW op trade is dying, plus CSEng is a pinchpoint trade.


HOWEVER, on the topic of CSEng trade, it does seem like it is no longer becoming a pinchpoint trade, and instead a flooded one... someone let that information slip.
