    I think there are other things to worry about than the money.

    The course itself.

    Right, sensible answer.
    No, you don't get SF Pay. You do get trade pay, but only if you pass your required courses, Signaller etc. If you think it's for you, apply to 4/73 Battery, or 148 Meiktila. 148 do get extra pay being AACC and Para qual'ed.

    Why are you not going UAV? I thought that was your preferred trade?
