If you have the qualifications,(you do not make that clear) then do yourself a favour and join as an Officer.rwilliams_006 said:I'm just wondering if you can transfer to a commisioned officer, if you join as a Communications Technician and if so what qualifications do you need and how long would it take. Do you have to become a leading hand first, for example.
Why would an In service man have to be less qualified in your opinion?Dr.Zoidberg said:Just wanted to say that, if you hadn't realised or didn't know (and may a fat bird kick me in the knackers if I'm jumping the gun and making assumptions), but going for an in service comission requires lower academic qualifications than direct entry. It's what I was banking on but ya know what? Fcuk. I don't want to be an orrificer anymore.

For me, there are a few factors to think about, but the most important one is ''what does one want out of the career''. Whilst there are a lot of financial benefits to direct entry as an officer, if one discovers that it's not a satisfying career then the financials don't make sense anyway.soleil said:All this must put rwilliams in a difficult situation, as she has already gone through the application process for Rating.
Two different things there. Challenges are just different, neither more nor fewer. And fwiw I'm fairly familiar with what CTs do.rwilliams_006 said:....in terms of more challenges and the opportunities to use a language, which would be more suitable, an Officer or a Rating as a CT.
