So the first PAABers on end of Class 1 get a two year learning period before they can start their course right. They started doing them April 04 so even the best have to wait 'til 06 before loading. My question is this, have the Corps painted themselves into a corner? Have we enough good grade folk passing old skool PAABs? Is this not the best time to go Tiffy as an non Class 1 PAABer? Looking at the last ASCLB results there were definately some mince Cat B candidates ones that failed exams on class 1 so didnt get Pot Art Trade passes for sure but are being allowed thru for 'bums on seats' reasons perhaps? Do they not need Pot Art Trade now the way Maths has been let go if you could pass the basic numeracy phase of Class 1? What a crock of sh1t, plenty of better tradesmen before them were brown lettered etc when we weren't so short. If any of you on a course/ASCLB results know you slipped thru, be a man and add to this forum too. I have my eye on a few names on the ASCLB that shouldn't be there! I leave it up to you ARRSErs to discuss, they are your future leaders after all.
