Most hands on trade?

#1
I am a fully qualified car mechanic, I do alot of engines, turbos, clutches, cambelts, head gaskets, and abit of diagnostic work. I enjoy the hands on practical side of the job, which RN trade offers the most hands on work and least amount of maths during phase two? Im not talking about the theory work, just straight maths. Im thinking ET ME but may have to consider doing my GCSE maths after work depending on how much maths plays apart in phase two.

ET(ME) is probably the closest to what you currently do, but be warned you are not let loose with a multi million pound piece of kit and a spanner straight away.

If you score high enough in the Recruiting Test for that trade, you are considered intelectually capable of successfully completing technical trade training.

Good luck.

if you then go on to phase 2 and find it to academicaly taxing can you then take a differnt trade that doesnt involve as much written work etc?

If a person finds phase 2 to be too acadmically challenging The Navy will decide where a person is best suited and will give the individaul the options (if any) that are available to him.

Harris,
ME is probably the most "hands on" trade, but as stated here on various threads, as a junior rate be prepared to clean, do "naval duties", and a whole lot of learning.

I would say (as a WE ), the most hands on would be Air Engineering. No frigging bilges in Helicopters mate.
Fair comment, but the initial post suggested that academics were not the individual's strong point - AET is indeed hands-on but it is also the longest & most academic phase two training course requiring the highest maths score.

Anyway, what's wrong with bilges? They're marvellous
