You realise of course that if you pass your AET course but fail to pass the LAET qualifying course (which I am led to believe is the same standard as the old mechanician course) you will be an AET for the rest of your service career. In my day the failure rate on mechs course was fairly high.
As a seaman spec his chances of passing for leading hand and then PO are statistically better.
It was always the standing joke. Want promotion - fishead first. WAFU - what promotion!!!!
