Bomb Disposal Bob said:For staff at Blackdown specifically. You staff for 7 weeks, with the first week being pre-course. For Pre-course everybody gets paid as a MCpl/Flight Corporal. At the end of that week you get your promos to you respective ranks. Sgt= $76-77, WO/FSgt=$80, MWO/WO2= $85, and they blacked out the RSM's pay but it was close to $90 if not above. For certain jobs you get danger pay which is an extra $10 a week, these jobs are generally all Support Staff jobs such as QM, Range NCO, Rope and Traverse Tech, life guards etc. TBH don't aim for staff just for the money, it's a great learning and training experience, and you're going to make life Long friends on course.
