    Hi, I'm just wondering what the realistic opportunities are for commissioned R.A.F. personnel to gain extra qualifications.

    I'm talking about anything from a ski instructor to a class 1 driver to a mechanics course...

    thanks in advance.

    Plenty.

    With the caveat that your role comes first and that may well mean that the course you booked onto 6 months ago becomes impossible for you to attend the week before.

    I got 3 different ski quals out of my brief time.

    Lots of potential. Realistically they will all cost you, but it might be time more than money. Don't expect to be able to get qualified in something that is part of a Trade, such as mechanic or certain driving quals. However, sports, professionally required training etc are all part of the development process.
