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. If i was to join REME i would be looking into either being a VM or Aircraft tech. 1. Are the promotions just as fast as a VM as they are as an air tech? 2. As a VM, would i come across a diverse worklife. i.e. many exercises overseas? 3. Also, how long are the postings and where are they? thanks to anyone that can help me out here.
