Went down to the careers office today for my barb and basic skills test. Ive one job in mind, and thats to be a sapper (fitter general). The staff down there is now telling me to look at joining REME as the promotion is fast. I want to be a sapper, but now im curious. 1. How fast are the promotions as a sapper? 2. Would a fitter general be a good role to take to be considered as an officer in the future? 3. Also, where are the usual postings and are there many exercises taken abroad? thanks to anyone who can help me out here.
