Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. How long did you serve? And what are you now doing for work?

    I served 4 years sometime wish that i had done more. Now working as a Satellite Engineer.

    Satellite engineer? Do you get a company car or a company space ship?

  5. BAE Systems? Lockheed Martin? DSTL? SKY even? Or the dodgy chap on the corner?

    Oh, and unless you squeezed in a BSc in the meantime, you ain't an engineer.

    Served for 4 years? I truly have had single drafts longer than that.

    Company van and ladder then?
     
  7. 4 years? Flk me I spent longer on the crest of 1 wave!
    Satellite Engineer, sounds impressive. But as mentioned to be an engineer requires University training and a degree. I suspect our young lad is a satellite dish installer. Even technician would be a stretch.

    RR, there are other qualifications that meet the Engineering Council's academic requirement in full for IEng. University training /degree is not required. Same for CEng.

    Installing top boxes and satellite dishes doesn't qualify one for a NASA ID card.
     
  9. HND plus some extra schooling covered it for me.
    Mind you. It's not like I ever worked in the field after the mob.
    Just a piece of paper that I attach to my CV.

  10. I haven't got a degree but I have an I Eng, also have a HNC and a handful of city and guilds (that aren't worth the paper they are written on)

    Killicks course ( C and G level 2)

    Harrier GR9 course ( C and G level 3)

    So a year at Daedalus was worth less than 6 weeks in the Harrier school!

  11. Is it worth registering with an institute ( I ENG etc ....) I'm eligible to but don't know if it's worth my while.

  12. I suggest you get it while you can, the process only gets more difficult.

    I'm lucky as my employer pays my fees so I bang in on my company credit card every year.

  13. SWS Fag, it all depends what you want to do when you go outside. I did all the registering while still in the mob, using all the bits of paper from Mech's course, and I think I was a Fellow of something or other. After doing a degree later, I ended up, much to my surprise, let alone other people's, as a CPhys!

    It did however pave the way to a decent and interesting job.
     
  14. Just had a wee look at the website, I can register engtech.

  15. I did mine through the IET, damn sight easier that the royal aeronautical society!
