    Hi all,

    Little question? I have a mate working with me, management are questioning his quals? He has 2391 as well as 17th, but cant prove his installation quals. He qualified in the Navy and he needs to prove their civvy equivalent? Can anyone help point us in the right direction please?

    When he left the RN did he sort his papers and qualifications out before leaving?

    worse case scenario is his previous military qualifications will exempt him from several of the units for the nvq. will at worse have to sit an am2. Its unusual these days though as now when they join its all civvy aligned and you basically do the same trade certs as kids in college.

    When my cousin left the RAF Regiment he did a multitude of courses to get back to civvy street so all was in order, in the end he ended up as a paramedic and now runs his own company and the spark was those courses.

    when people leave the forces they get credits that can be used for retraining, the amount dependant on time served and whether its due to injury etc... its a lot better now than it was even several years ago. just got to be careful as a lot of cowboy outfits popped up offering crap courses of no real benefit to get the cash off the mod. if used properly it can set you up for a whole new career.

    I think an American healthcare company wanted to but him out for £9M not bad for a grunt from NI.

    What qualifications did he get in the Navy?
    The qualifications I got in the RAF Regiment were the 2369 parts 1 & 2, and the AM 1 & 2.
    The 2369 was the same as the 2360.
    Which I also took after leaving the RAF.

    The good news is that any re-wires he does will be entirely water and salt-spray resistant. The down side will be the sacrificial anodes in the bath.
