Sounds like misinformation, pusser has got a lot better at getting courses civvy accredited these days. Maybe it's sour grapes because the killick didn't get an accreditation he thought he deserved?I was talking to the parents of a serving LEAT this week.
They were saying that matelots were no longer being awarded Civilian qualifications as so many were obtaining them and then slapping in their notice to get better jobs outside.
I fail to see the RN doing this as it used to be part of their advertising to get people to join.
Can anyone confirm any truth in this or have the parnts picked up misinformation?

Do you still get day releaseMy ONC was completed on day release at a civie college.
I believe anothe Wafu on this site JFH also did this.
I was extremelly fortunate by being in the right place at the right time where we had a Sqdn Ldr who believed in education.
As a B13 rating I never realised that day release was an option, RN schoolies never broadcast the fact.
I thought that was the case Wrecker, but as a PSOF who has been out of the loop long time I was not qualified to comment.I got an OND in general engineering after Mechs course (and a C&G in Fitting and Turning ), when I signed up for my HNC in Electrical/Electronic Engineering the civvy tutors looked at the OND and said it should have been an HND and were amazed pusser hadn't had it assessed as such by BTEC.
CPO(ET)'s (todays Mechs/Tiffs) get a foundation degree when they get their buttons.
