    Just wondering how many of the board members are qualified drivers in their respective units to compare with the total number of members. Any Brigade run event seems to have every person driving something so id like to see the breakdown.
    51
    Motorcycle
    19.61%
    10
    Nissan/ Nissan and Trailer
    37.25%
    19
    TCV/Mini-Bus
    25.49%
    13
    Armour-AMLs, Scorpion, MOWAG etc
    11.76%
    6
    DROPS
    5.88%

    It might be edit that poll to add "Unqualified" and "Well I would if there were courses"

    :wink::wink:
    "Are they trying to shoot down the other drone? "

    "No, they're trying to fly the tank"

      Points to note:
      I know of 3 lurkers on this board that are drivers. 1 drops and 2 tcv
      Your poll does not differentiate between RDF and PDF.

      Oh come off it.
      The absents of any member of your unit on the current conversion course didn't go un-noticed.

      Oh yes I forgot Bde forgot to tell you the course was comming up!!!!!!!!

      But the poll could show "currently doing .........." or " awaiting test for......" and also there are a cople of coach qualified.

          Very poor turn out for the minibus course last week. Plenty of instructors and the pupils did'nt bother to show up.
          I'm not a number, I'm a free man.
          Who is number 1?

              Well, if it anything like the south, if they hear about the course in the first place, they are then being f&^%ed around from one place to another, told they are on the course, not on the course, maybe on the course, Finally to be told that the course was on last week and why weren't they there.

              Stop blaming potential students for not showing up - instead blame the admin system that ensures they don't show up.

                          You have to wonder what is so difficult to understand about the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act of 2005.

                          General Duties of Employer
                          8 (2)(g) providing the information, instruction, training and supervision necessary to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the safety, health, and welfare at work of his or her employees;
                          If you haven't been trained by the DF you aren't qualified to operate DF equipment.

                            Oh, so if I'm a Defence Forces Doctor they have to train me to operate the DF-owned blood pressure cuff ?

                            Those heavy vehicle mechanics they're so desperate for won't be trained by the DF
                            "Are they trying to shoot down the other drone? "

                              A medic can take your blood pressure.

                              The DF trains heavy vehicle mechanics all the time. And it looks like it will have to train more since the RDF can't provide.
