It all depends on the course loads at your trade training location. Courses such as carpentry and electrician tend to be more heavily loaded so youll have to wait to start your basic

what about fitters?

I'm not entirely sure how it works but if you're lucky you will get back to back courses ie. CMS(R) (basic) -> B3 (combat engineering) -> Ftr 0-2 (fitter gen course) -> C+E (driving)

Or you could get screwed around and the total training time taking 20-22 months. I had to wait 6 weeks after selection before starting basic and have only spent 2 weeks in a holding troop so far (TV tp, after B3)
