Q: When an FMT1000 is received is it?

1, Sent back stating there's nothing available and a non availability chit will follow which it never does.

2, Put it in the things to do file only to miss the requested date.

3, Make a paper aeroplane.

4, Deny all knowledge it was ever received.

5, All of the above.

Simple question, get it right and you're in...

should it matter if there is a sitting in test, surely as a Dvr you know everything already and should be able to attend the course without any problem.

You should be recieveing a course pack soon with all the study aids you need (or so i'm told).
You will do DRSA,lots of JSP 800 "cani i?" questions,jsp 101 writing,Route recce drive etc.
1000 series documents,convoy support centre setup,driver licensing,application forms etc.
Basically it's a "how to run an MT properly" course.

So are you on the course now, may have to do the next one is it worth it?
Not a case of "Is it worth it?" mate. It is now a mandatory requirement for eligibilty for promotion to SSgt in the Dvr trade.

Sorry... but there was me thinking that as a Dvr trade when you get to rank of Sgt you would actually know how to do your job. from what i hear the reason behind the course is get everyone qualified and ready to become future MDs and cut down on the MD course.

It's not that simple,the course qualifies the individual with DRSA and Fuel supervisor quals etc,something not open to full screws etc.
Remember under the old system a Driver could go all the way up to WO1 with just his B1 trade qual (excluding cadres etc).
As B.O.S stated this course seems to be a prerequisite now for promotion to SSgt.....
On a side note i would expect a Rad Op SNCO to know his trade inside out however i work with two who have retraded to Driver role.Obviously they don't like Bowman.... :lol:
