- Reaction score
Since I joined in 09 it has changed 4 times, I have retaken courses and qualifications because of RCEME schools games multiple times. As a result I will have 12 years in September but still not fully qualified. The latest change happened in 2018 adding C3 howitzer for reserve techs, as well as the C16 and readded .50 cal. As a result every previously fully qualified tech who could go over seas now can't because they need all courses complete to go over seas in trade. Yes that's right you need C3 qualified to go over seas.RCEME reserve is an interesting problem space, worsened repeatedly by allegedly smart officers continually resetting and "improving" training such that no one ever can complete training before it gets reset again.
Nothing like having a soldier returned from a course because the 1.3 they were loaded on is now the same as the 1.2 they did last year, and what they really need is the new 1.2 (and no one in the RCEME school knew it when they were loaded). Bonus points when said soldier's dad is a general...
I am convinced the school cannot actually manage its personal and training properly both Reg and reserve and the army needs to step in and sort it out.
