etme advice

#1
Just a few quick questions all replys appreicaited.

1, What are the pros and cons of a etme? (more time at sea? not as much down time? shore time when on ship?)

2, Are there any books that would give me a good basic knowledge of me? as i dont't have a vast knowledge of the subject.

3, how long should i expect to become a leading hand in this field?

Hi,

The biggest pro is the fact that inbuilt into your professional training you will gain a foundation degree in Mechanical Engineering. You can even take this further and complete a full degree at the Navy's expense. So good prospects for a job after you leave the service. On completion of your 7 months' training you will go straight to sea; you will normally be drafted to your first ship for about 3 years. During this time you would normally complete your Task Book for Leading Hand and therefore probably be sent to Sultan to do your LET course. So minimum time to promotion will be 3/4 years. You don't need to have a vast understanding of Marine Engineering as we'll teach you. However, any previous experience of anything mechanical will help with your understanding of basic engineering terms and practices. I don't know of any specific books to read, but perhaps Ninja Stoker (or one of the other Stokery persons) will know some.

Hope this helps

I'm currently in the process of taking my Navy test (logistic officer), but could someone state how much maths or how good your maths must be to succeed in etma. The reason i ask is a friend of mine has considered joining as a etme- but although he has a c at gcse maths his maths is not great at all.

Thank you!

Hi,

When you sit the Recruit training test (Which you should have sat) there are differing marks for different branches within the RN. For the ET (ME) job you need to score approx half the total mark of 120 and approx half the mark in the maths section ie 15 out of 30

Hope that helps
