Potential frequency of deployment (and general questions) - Survival Equipment Technician (SET)

Hello,

I'm currently applying for the role of Survival Equipment Technician (SET).

Although you obviously can't say for certain, does anyone have an idea how often I might be deployed with this job? I have heard it is one of the position that is deployed less often than others.

Also, does anyone have any experience with this role, either directly or indirectly?

Cheers

Don't expect a quick reply. The SE trade is a very small branch of the FAA. I don't recollect any SE or ex SE on here.

My son was SE for seven years, (at the turn of the century). He did one deployment in that time. (6 weeks) That was to a RFA. Navy's mobile hotels!!!!!!

That would be most appreciated! Would also be curious to know what his average day's work looks like too, if he feels like sharing. Cheers

Hi, the job was ok, he didn't find it challenging at all. His particular gripe was having wrens promoted over him. That was his main reason for leaving.
However, it was for the best. He's now way better off, did a degree in some IT subject, he's now a developer, although he likes the term 'coder' for some reason!! A salary and perks he'd never see in the SE trade!!
