  1. Evening all,

    After reading some older threads on this forum, I came across some complaints about certain trades, in particularly Fitter: ACR, being trade/ Q streamed and not getting the chance to do the B1 knocker course, something that I would like to have the oppurtunity of doing.

    I start Basic in August and just wanted to know the current state of things. Am I really going to be pushed towards doing the Clerk of Works course if I want to be promoted further up the ladder? Or are they allowing Fitter and design trades onto the B1 courses now?

    Thanks for any help,

  2. Cant speak for fitters but design trades can now go combat stream and do B1, field section commanders etc etc. As for getting promoted, welcome to the Corps of evidently doesnt give a ****, 5 years after joining and still not been loaded onto a cadre. Pass P Coy and you spend the rest of your career being punished for it...
  3. Have you considered the possibility that there may be people better than you?
