I have a recuitment interview this wednesday 14th April. Just wanted some advice first on trade training locations on particular jobs.

I am interested in these three roles:-

Survival equipment fitter, trade training at RAF Cosford, near Wolverhampton for 7 months..

ICT aerial erector - Can anybody confirm where trade training takes place and how long?


Logistics Driver - This role i havnt found a lot of info on the net about, can anyone enlighten me on this role same for trade training and how long?

Any info would be great just to prepare me before wed.

many thanks
alastair

Driver training takes place at the Defence School of Transport which is based at Leconfield. I am not sure exactly how long it takes, as you are there to acquire a number of driving licenses.

If you put 'RAF AERIAL ERECTOR TRAINING' into Google, you'll find out the answer on that one.

Is anybody able to confirm how long the driver training is at RAF Defence School of Transport Leconfield?

Also any Survival equipment fitters out there, who have worked in the trade 25 years etc, what sort of roles are you able to walk into when entering back in to civilian life?

You've got the interview on Wednesday and you have only just started researching? Do you think you should have had a look earlier?

A career rests on this interview, so make sure you have fully prepared!!

Anyone getting to over 20 years in any Trade would be looking at using their management more than their 'hand on' skills if they wanted to apply their experience to any future career.

No i have the recuitment interview/chat on wednesday not trade interview....

I sitted the tests 18 months ago and decided not to sign up at the time, due to personal reasons. I wish i had now, if i had known how long you have to wait....

This interview is just to talk about roles i can qualify for from tests already taken 18 months ago...

I have spoken to afco on phone and they have listed say 5 or 6 roles i can do, but instead of just choosing the role which trades open the quickest and doing it for the sake of it....they want to chat to me face to face to make sure i choose the correct career path...

i was only asking very basic questions regarding trade training for these roles, i feel the attitude some of you have is appaling to new recuits.

If this is just an initial chat, these questions are all good ones to ask the AFCO when you meet with them - they should be able to help you out.

Jim, this thread is almost 6 years old so I suspect the OP is long gone and is probably a Cpl by now! However, lots of guys on here are looking at various Loggy roles and I'm sure your input will be valuable to them. Stick around and help these people out!
