Infrastructure Engineer levels

#1
Evening all,

Does anyone know what the different levels of award are for infrastructure engineer? The job role states ‘You will then be awarded a Military Engineer Infrastructure specialist trade qualification. The level will depend on your qualifications, skills and experience‘

Searching for an answer on a Sunday evening prior to the recruitment centre opening.

Thanks in advance

Unless things have changed you will be awarded you Class 3 qual. Don't know how you get Class 2 and will need to go on an upgrading course for class 1.

It does amuse me that Nick Carter found the trade names that complicated that he had them changed to something harder to understand.

I'm assuming this is for 170 engineer group? If so then you'll be awarded either Foundation, Intermediate, or Advanced (classes 3/2/1 in old money) depending on your qualifications and civi experience. The process has a degree of subjectiveness to it but in rough terms a trade qualification/a-levels/current student will get you Foundation, an HNC/D and some experience Intermediate, with a degree and established career earning Advanced.

If you don't get Advanced at the first try they'll tell you what you need to do to get the next stage up and reassess you roughly annually till you get there.

Yes, I was looking at 170 Engineer group. I currenty have an application in and it’s
under education waiver review for officer entry. I don’t have ALIS or UCAS points, however I have 15 years management experience and qualifications at master’s level and NVQ level 4 & 7. I’m also chartered so would hopefully be accepted at Advanced status.

I was reviewing options for solider entry of my waiver was refused. Idealy for solider entry i’d be keen on a fast track promotion of such a thing is available. It appear’s the signals currently have a fast track to ssgt with the caveat of performance.

Unfortunately that is no longer true. The Yeoman of Signals used to get selected as a Cpl then go on Cue as a Sgt finishing as a SSgt. I'm pretty sure that you get selected as a Sgt now. So there's no advantage over the other Supervisory trades or Regimental Duty (boots & haircuts). Marks from the course were used to as early module of a Lincoln University BSc, but a years work was required after the course. However, the ball has been dropped and none of the Royal Signals courses are accredited anymore (nice one!).

There is the Engineer Leadership Board which the recruiters will be able to give you the full details on. They assess a portfolio of your civi skills and experience and it fast-tracks you from Cpl to SSgt in 2 years.

TBH rank doesnt matter as much in 170 as it might in other units, quite common to find that a LCpl or Spr is an SME in a niche area by virtue of their day job and so will be given the respect as such.

Update: NRC contacted me this afternoon advising that an education waiver has been granted for officer entry; I also need to contact my chosen unit for an interview. I’ve also been issued with medical forms for my GP to complete.

Education waiver process took 7 days from submission to decision.
