Just been down to Grantham to spend 2 weeks on a UBRE /TFF course as part of the course we are required to do ADR /HAZMATT to make us legal to drive the kit on the road. So imagine to our surprise and horror after spending a week in a class room being bored stupid about trem cards ect to find out on the Friday morning that the city&guilds exam(s) we were supposed to sit to quailfiy us we couldn't take the required exam. Thanks to a useless civil servant (waste of space) who works at said unit we were unable to take the exam why? As the t"Â£t of a post clerk signed for a yellow page packet containing the exam papers on the 31 of July but couldn't remember who/were he placed or sent them on the camp but it wasn't the Dvr Trg wing were the were supposed to have been sent! even a tannoy announcement failed to produce them. The upshot of it is around 9 TA and 3 regular(all supposed to be on leave) will now have to go back at a later date and re-sit them. This clown has now left people 1/2 trained to carry out a task and just how much has he cost unit's off their budgets thanks to his complete and utter incompetence! if he'd been ID'd on Friday most of us would be looking at a murder charge now.....utter ********! The effect it has on me is that now a weekend before I go to Germany for 2 weeks is that I now have to travel to do an exam cancelling out prior arrangements that I already had in place. Perhaps the MOD wants to look more closely before civi-ing jobs as quite clearly the the mongs they end up employing in cases end up costing more money than they save. If this was a sqauddie who'd cock'd up he'd be on a charge and rightly so but however as it's a CS no doubt more time and money will be wasted by his union trying to protect him if he's in the sh1te over his incompetence hear endith the rant!
