Sapper to civvi street explosive demolition

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Anyone here done/doing it?

    Any info on training providers and what they make of ME (Cbt) Section commander skills?
     
  2. Maybe ask your MPF or if you are at 33 or 101 ask one of the BDO's. The MPF's do a shot firing course whilst they are doing their MPF course so might be able to shed some light on what you can do.
     
  3. These folk will give you a steer on training/professional memberships:

    Also try speaking with contractors directly:

    http://www.connellbrothers.co.uk/ (I know they do explosives).

    http://www.wooldridgegroup.co.uk/demolition.htm

    http://www.dsmdemolitiongroup.co.uk/services/

    Not all of these do expl demolition, but it'll give you a better idea by location:

    http://www.buildingregister.com/demolition_p0.html

    Good luck!

  6. Rather than contacting contractors get in touch with the Institute Of Explosive Engineers at Shrivenham

    I left in 96 and moved into H & S. Ended up being the H & S manager for a certain well known Leeds based explosive demolition contractor for 6 years

    Great fun but hard graft. A few ex RE working within the sector
