Sapper Trades?

Discussion in 'Army Reserve' started by Lepus, Jul 21, 2006.

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. Checked the ARRSEpedia, and I can't find reference to any Sapper trades...

    Does anyone have a list?

  2. And more here: http://www.armyjobs.mod.uk/RegularArmy/RolesAndCareers/Engineering/

    The thing to remember is that while you may not be able to do some of the courses as a TA soldier in order to learn a trade, your civvy trade may fit in with one of those listed. If so, depending on the qualification you hold, you may be granted trade status on the basis of the paperwork, or you may need to have your skills tested.
     
  3. Thanks Puttees.
     
  4. Going RE XplosiveRab? If you want a trade that will set you up in civvy st. for later life while enjoying an interesting career then try RE Mil Svy. It's not mainstream RE but might suit you.
     
  5. A fuller list with the civvy qualifications that Regulars can get by attending the courses: http://www.re-cpd.org.uk/civillianqualifications.asp

    If you read the list in reverse, it gives a bit of an idea of the civvy quals that are needed to fulfil the military trade quals, but not quite. Use it as a gauge, rather than an equivalence table.
     
  6. Ive got my unit spotted already mate, I just need to pop up there and get the ball rolling.
