Well i passed for TSM june 2010, and i havent got an official date yet, Although the Allocator said january 2013 for definite, September this year if 4 people drop their dates.
Still a fair while to go yet i guess for you mate it seems.
Im sure N_S or somebody will be around soon to clear it up for you pal.
What? A TS having to clean the control room? Whatever f*cking next. You'll enjoy general service because there isn't any part of ship, flats, heads or bathrooms, passageways or messdecks to clean or any chipping and painting to do.
