Hi, I have been trawling through some of the threads regarding joining up and the REME. I am 29 years old and through circumstance I now have the opportunity to join the army. I have always been interested in the army and like the idea of a career and lifestyle the army can offer. I am a university graduate with a degree in healthcare (not my first choice but felt the need to go to uni) Now that the opportunity has come for me to apply I am really considering it applying for aircraft technician and have looked through the army job website and also through arrse. This appeals to me because I can get a good decent trade and the fast track to promotion if I achieve the required standards is also appealing. I have done as much research as possible and will be going to the careers office on Monday to get some further information. I am posting this on here as I know it can be brutally honest so here goes. Is 29 a bit too late to apply for aircraft tech? Will I be able to do a full 22 year service?
