Does anyone know the 'real' amount of time specialists need to put in (I've seen the minimum quoted figures). I'm considering my options but doing 220 miles each way (frequently) seems to be a non starter. Also does anyone know the PQO process, I've been told its 2x 2 week courses @ RMAS but its possible to do the first one with the AMS. Are other routes available such as LE? Anyone know a rough date when LCICSG will start? Also has anyone transfered from a normal Sig Regt to a specialist and how did you find it. I think I might miss the social side, possibly end up spending less time with my family as I understand I'd be moving from an 'enabler' post to a likely to be mobilised post. p.s. anyone from my unit reading this, it doesn't mean the gypo is moving again, just I'd be stupid to ignore my options.
