  1. Hi,
    I've recently applied for ammunition technician in the RLC, and no one can answer me this question:- :?

    "I have a slight high pitched hearing loss and was wondering if this would affect my entry as an ammo tech?"

    Please get back to me if you can as I'm struggerling to find an answer.
    Cheers

  2. im not sure but you do have to do a hearing test at selection if you pass that then you will be ok
     
  3. Don't know Ben Middleton, it's on a case basis, generally depends on the requirements in general (medically).
     
  4. I'm not sure of the criteria, but Ammo Techs are meant to have their hearing checked yearly (although this never happens).

    The problem for you is that the test involves identifying varying pitch in either ear.

    You will just have to do the test and take from there.
