Pet ops to be duel traded with Drivers ????

Discussion in 'RLC' started by Satan, Nov 28, 2004.

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. Can anyone shed any light on a nasty rumour i have heard apprently by 2007 the Pet-op and driver trades will be brought together to form the trade Driver Pet-Op people joining this trade will perform Driver/Pet-op roles up to Cpl and then will get the chance to choose in which they want to specialize i am a Pet-Op and personally i think this would be a bad thing you could get a Pte posted to a unit just performing driver duties for three years then get posted to a Pet-Op unit to perform Pet-Op duties so he /she is bound to get skill fade doesnt anyone think of the implications this might have the Army Air corp have a similar problem with them learning three trades before they are posted to their unit so if anyone has a knowledge of this or they can quash this nasty rumour now then please do so
     
  2. Are not all RLC driver trained at Phase II?

    What I see as a better solution is that Pet-Ops along with Butchers, Bakers, Laundry Ops, who already are & I believe soon Supply Controllers will become dual trades (or specialisations) with Supply Specialists which would make more sense within a Supply Regiment than being employed as a Driver. The RLC seems to want everything on wheels and transport orientated these days. They are even looking at ways to do away with Ammo Techs!

    P.S. Probably Vehicle Specialists will go the same way as well....
     
  3. yes most trades within the RLC are driver trained but not all trades do fualt finding so they cannot class us as driver class 3
     
  4. Should be it makes sense - but only TTF side, should then all be renamed as Fuel Operators or Fuel Specialists. Might get Higher Band then.
     
  5. LMFAO no comment its that stupid
     
  6. THE DRIVER PET OP THING HAS BEEN BANTERED AROUND FOR AGES AND IT SEEMS TO HAVE BECOME A ARMY RUMOUR I AM A PET OP AND CAN NEVER SEE IT HAPPENING NOT IN MY CAREER LIFETIME AND TO BE FAIR IT IS A SYSTEM THAT WOULD NEVER WORK BUT HAS THAT EVER STOPPED THE ARMY FROM MAKING THESE DECISIONS BEFORE ??????
     
  7. IF YOU WERE A PET OP AND NOT JUST A FUEL TRAINED TROG YOU WOULD GET HIGHER PAY BAND
     
  8. As an ex-RCT chap, who was around when they formed the RLC and had the privilege to know a lot of Pet Ops from Warendorf, all I can say to you is what I said to those guys then - "We are the RCT, you will be assimilated, resistance is futile !!!" :twisted:
     
  9. Im not a Trog Im areal M"T"I not some 2 year wannabe
     
  10. doesnt matter as its all just rumour...nowt down on paper just gossip mongers.

    Sup con/sup spec.....fact....

    the rest.......betty swallocks
     
  11. MTIs....mmmmm, now there is a crap thing that has been disbanded. The MSIs are the way forward which is why u lot are now no more :twisted:
     
  12. :arrow: And the differance is? 8)
     
  13. MTIs just like REME RSs deserve what they get, power tripping feckin fools. I cant see the RLC getting any better with, Military Ski Instructors to replace them. :?
