As some of you might remember, I'm currently in the process of applying to be a CT (been a slight hiccup along the way, but that should be sorted soon). I've also been considering applying to be an officer, Engineering Officer (Information Systems) being the role which most interests me. However, I am currently in the first year of a degree not related to Computing, meaning I'd have to change to computing next year. Is it possible to sit AIB before starting a degree to see if it's worth my while changing my course? If I knew that I had no chance of becoming an Officer I'd stay on my current course, which should be finished by the time I get a place as a CT. I'm excited by the prospect of being a CT, and this is the only career I'd give it up for. Would applying to be an Officer mean I have to drop out of selection for CT? I'd contact the AFCO to ask, but I don't really want to until the problem with my current application is sorted.
