Lcpl after training?

#1
Does anybody have a list of all the jobs/trades where you are promoted to lcpl after completion of training? I already know a few such as ammo techs and RMP but was just wondering any other jobs that gave this promotion after training?

Why not base your job choice on the one that most appeals, rather than the one dangling a tape?

There are drawbacks to a lot of the trades that offer accelerated promotion and you may find yourself marking time later in your career.

If you joined the RMP for example everyone would think you're a ****(, even your parents).

Going for a branch just to get a tape after training does'nt make you a better soldier.

You could join the REME as a tech, but then this rule -
If you joined the RMP for example everyone would think you're a ****
- would apply to you too!
They're given stripes by the army to try and get them to stay in longer after all the expensive trade-training they've received. Makes a mockery of the rest of us having to earn our tapes and most techs deserve their tapes as much as t. bliar deserves my support!

Awe Jack H, what's wrong, would a big bad REME VM not change the wheels on your Pram & you had to walk???

Seen as VMs are not techs and have to earn there tape im guessing that is not the reason lol.
How? By expansively filling covies and slammimg a never ending stream of pies into their fat grids, with their grubby oil and grime encrusted Ginsters shovels.

Everyone knows most VMs can barely fit a rifle sling, never mind lead a section.

Not once did I imply in my question that anyone pursuing a career in these trades were better soldiers than others. All I wanted was a simple list of the trades that do offer this promotion incentive but it seems as though I won't get this, instead I'll get opinions from bitter soldiers who didn't have the brains to go into any of these trades and are upset that less experienced soldiers are getting promoted twice as fast as them.

calm down, calm down are kidd!!!

I've probably got a far better performing brain than you carvel, I'm not bitter - that's crap - I drink German lager!

I didn't want to be a tech, despite getting the top score at my Careers Office as a kid - and certainly not an RMP, after 3 yrs looking after them, many too inexperienced for their rank.
If you don't want opinions then don't post on a forum! :)

You could always ask at your local Army Careers Office.

Ooooh! I take it you won't be joining the "How to make friends" Corps, then.
Best thing is to pick a trade, check the website for the Corps and see what the promotion prospects are for that trade.
RMP, OPMI, REME and R Signals techs, some R Signals operator trades, etc etc. Pay Corps (in my day) used to get it as well but not sure if that has continued onto AGC employment.
I stand to be corrected on this but a lot of the trades make you attend a leadership course of some kind at the end of the trade training and your promotion depends on the results of this (probably not in the case of the RMP or techs).

If you actually did roll on the floor after reading my post you either have epilepsy and should seek medical assistance, or you are some sort of attention seeking codheaded bender.
