Joining as a plumber

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. Hi.

    Ive read over a few threads regarding plumbing but still have a few questions i hope to have answered.

    After checking the Army website it says the entry requirement for the course are;

    Three GCSEs at Grade C or above in Mathematics, English Language and one other.

    I have 6 GCSE's at grade C but one of them isn't English, but i do have a basic plumbing certificate (City and Guilds 6129 Level 2) which i believe you train towards in the Army.

    Will i still be allowed to enter as a plumber even though i don't have the C in English?

    Also, as a plumber, i realise it will vary widely what i may be doing, but is there alot of chance to serve abroad?

    I'll have more questions once these have been answered, haha. thanks guys/girls.
