ETME qualifications

Will joining as a engineering technician (marine engineer) provide good useful qualifications for when I leave the RN and will it class me as a skilled worker for having these qualifications. I am just sceptical because my brother was in the army (tank regiment) and now he can’t find a job at all.

Any information would be appreciated, thanks!

Reckon this has been done to death. But, using your engineering intelligence, what do you think?

What I think is that I shouldn’t just jump straight into a career with being properly prepared for it

A marine engineer will have many transferable skills on the outside, there's not much call for tank crews though.

Something to do with maintaining tanks and yeah I just passed my fitness test last weekend and now I’m waiting for a start date
 
I love these posts:

1. Cant wait to join up, it's all I've ever wanted to do.....
2. What Quals do I get for when I leave?

Join up and enjoy yourself, the RN gives you money to educate yourself up to PHD if you use it wisely.
