Right I have two (dumb) questions in this one. 1: i am applying as an ET(ME) rating, is that a non-commissioned position? I think it is. Whats the difference between commissioned and non-commissioned? I have tried looking online and at all the literature i was given at the AFCO, but with no luck 2: can i delete old posts i have put up, because i'm aware i am slowly taking over this forum with dumb questions. thanks (again).
