(Persuming you are talking Infantry here) You can get your license, go on language courses, and be cold wet and tired most of the time.

Enjoy your career!

You can get a HND level 2 in "how to kill people, but only on a Tuesday night, or the weekend.....if it's not raining".

It's very handy!

Fcuk all really, quals wise.

Join the RLC TA, get a HGV licence and then fook off. Thats what most of them seem to do, and its the only useful thing you can get out of the retards club, last I checked.

Get a real job and pay for the course's with the cash you earn from hard work.
I was training to be a Welder but there is no apprenticeships in my area and ive tried loads of places nothing going since theres a recession in the country.

I don't think it's sarcasm mate, just a jot of reaslism from people who may or may not have no useful qualifcations from the Army despite years of hoping/trying otherwise.
The skills that you are looking for will only come from being in the a reg RMP CP unit or SF. The chances of getting them from your local unit are nil unless you local unit is 21 or 23.

Whats with the sarcasm? Only asking a question.
Sorry fella you get all the quals you need to be one of those tesco rentacops.

Better?
Whats your problem?

He's right though. Giving it the big 'un after 8 posts isn't really going to make anyone sit up and take notice. The simple fact is, without a 22 year career and the benefit of resettlement training or being a black tape bandit, you won't get much out of the TA short term, quals wise.

The RLC likes to make sure it's lads reach their potential.

They issue 25% off McDonald's coupons.

You will learn time management - be on time or be Boll*cked

Ironing, boot bulling, keep fit, First aid, map reading and most important of all - sense of humour.

On a marginally more serious note, I know guys in the RE that have gotten some fairly good civvy quals out of the TA - chainsaw quals, things like that.

Otherwise, what everyone else has said - your driving license, if you don't already have one, and maybe the odd NVQ. But nothing earth-shattering or career-changing. If that's what you want from the Army, you probably want the regs.

Another thing you will get is a very useful network.

It's not what you know, it's who you know...

The standard driving quals B, B+E, C, C+E and Hazmat. Some units you'll get IT courses such as Promina which has helped a few soldiers into a new full time job (and as MSR mentioned the contacts helped a few others).
