I went to the AFCO and got a new date of my aptitude test. I still have no idea what trade to go into. I know there's not much good planning to do somthing mechanical if i only get enough marks for a steward. Not that i'm disrespecting stewards at all, but i really want to dig in and learn a great trade. I've asked this before, but i'll ask it a little differently. What trades translate well back on civvy street? Which trades give a mix of academic and on-the-job (!) training? Because i'd like to get some civvy recognised qualifications, but also want something that's pretty different to anything available to me (or not...) on civvy street. If that makes any sense. Also, does anyone have a sort of 'scale' of the marks needed for trades? I mean, bottom to top scale of trades? I guess i'm talking to myself really, the decision of finding a trade is getting harder because i really want to do this and i want to make the most of a career in th Navy (if i do ok at the test). Booklets and websites only tell you so much!
