Also posted in sappers thread but no responses yet.. After doing some reading on the General Fitter trade, it seems as time passes you do less and less of your actual trade with Combat Engineering taking precedence. What i want to know is, from the start of phase 2 trade training, is your trade the main focus until you have achieved the NVQ 2 Engineering Maintenance? Then can i continue straight to my specialisation to earn my NVQ 3. Is 4-5 years to get my NVQ3 realistic, or would i be too busy with the other sides of the job? Thanks.
