Ahh knocker at it again however i just spat coffee over the keyboard Quote knocker " worse things you could be"
Matt99 it is one of the only trades that you are going to do all the time you will get NVQs and CPCS ticket in all sorts of machinery that said with ALC now in charge of equipment there is not much to do in camp.
It is a good trade but there are ones out there that will set you in good stead for the future (HERE YOU ARE KNOCKER one for you) sparky chippie survey geek take your pick.
Like has been said visit ACIO get yourself on a look at life with engineers.
It is a good trade. A relatively short Class 2 (only 6 months!) and a fair bit of responsibility from the begining of your career. Go and dig in a n infantry company on exercise and you will without doubt be the most popular man ever in their location. Further on down the line if you want to go into the technical stream you can become a Military Plant Foreman, a Clerk of Works (Construction) or a Clerk of Works (Mechanical) so more choices than any other trade in the Corps.
Nothing like having people who want to be at Training Regt there teaching. Training regt instructors should not be forced in by records, the posts should be filled by people who volunteered to go there.
