Although really a quetion for the RCMO I thought I would just test the opinion of all in here. I am at the point in my career where I need to figure out what I'm going to do for the rest of it. Obviously there are 3 options but signing off is for the weak so that isnt going to happen. That leaves staying in trade or going RD. Alot can be said for both, but and this is big but, which one to choose. As you can probably guess I am an IS Eng, if this whole IS/Tech merge happens and as I have been hearing the Sup/FofS is merging then the decision will be made for me, as there is no way in this world I will be able to make up for the 30 months training that the Tech has gone through before the FofS entrance. That said if needs must then I am hoping some sort of course will be available for the knowledge gap to be filled. I have looked at the pro's and con's of each but I would like to hear other peoples opinions on the subject. If any of the information regarding the trades merging is incorrect then please let me know.
