Hi there just wanted some advice. 21 years old Currently serving as an ETME. Finished harbour/sea taskbook and passed OPS board, good write up etc so ready for promotion. Coming up to 3 years served and will be able to put my notice in January 2018. Most of my time has been spent around the UK at sea , some stops in Europe nothing exciting so can't really say I've enjoyed my time if I'm honest , expected to see a bit more of the world. If I was to leave is there much on the outside for someone leaving as an ET with just an NVQ lvl 2 in engineering operations? Been told there's a year wait to go 0nto LET course , then the course itself (18 months) followed by 2 years return of service. So basically best part of 5 years I'll have to commit to be on a better wage and gain a NVQ level 3. Is it worth all that time or can I get something in civi street which is same/more pay. Any advice will be appreciated , thanks.
