Hello all. I've read up the information given on the official Army website, and done some searching through the REME threads to gather what information I could about VM training. As I understand it, a VM's training consists of a 5 weeks foundation course, in which suitability for becoming a VM is assessed. This is followed by about 20 working weeks training, then 9 weeks driver training. I'm having a job believing that it only takes a little over 30 weeks to train a person up in all aspects of being a mechanic, and to be able to confidently work on the broad range of equipment the army uses. This is considering it takes years to qualify as a car mechanic in civvy street. My question is, after the above training, is there any further training which isn't mentioned? Any information of such training would be great. Thanks for reading.
