Petroleum Operator or Driver?

#1
Hello

I am off to ADSC Glencorse on the 17th July.
I hope to pass, if i do i am hoping to either be a Petroleum Operator or a Driver.
Any advice on these would be really appreciated. Thanks

I have done some pretty varied driving over the past 3 year, I have the following:
C+E
Coach
Motorcycle
Car.
i can drive in the Army:
All SV variants.
JCB (old and by next week new!)
All Fuel tankers that the Army use.
DROPS both IM and MM
Hysters
Container MHE
Volvo 4400 (any still around?)
and a few others.

And im a PetOp! Be one of the few!
As for earning money driving tankers, dont fall for it. I fell for the careers officer saying "when you leave the PetOp trade you can work on oil rigs and earn mega bucks."

Maybe but your the exception rather than the rule, the majority of petops i have met are lucky if they are fammed on Rover and 4t Daf.

I'm a VM though and therfore can drive whatever i choose to :evil:

I assume 2 things from your comment...
1. Your looking at your 1 page FMT 600 with L/R HS TUM and TUL on it and feeling inadequate!
2. Or you dont believe me!

All i can say, i have been posted to a certain Tpt Regt on my next posting due to the driving experience i have on certain equipment.
Am i bigging myself up, too right iam! its nice to feel wanted! :D
But on the flip side, when im not showing Drivers how to drive ill go back to my other "string in the bow" and do the best trade in the Corps, Petroleum Operator!
As the saying goes, "we can do yours but you cant do ours!"

Your right though mate, im a freak within our trade and suffer from the piss taking they give me!
But it shows that its possible to get licences even though they are not trade related.
