    Okay, maybe I am misunderstanding Direct Entry, or at least using the wrong term. I suppose what I'm asking is that if someone of previous military service outside the State with significant rank and pertinent and valuable experience were to join the RDF; are there any regulatory mechanisms to carry their rank over into the RDF? This is assuming vacancies are available yada yada yada...
    Its barely available for someone with past experience in the PDF.

    Once the rollout of MS Office is announced in the RDF, he'll be on it like a car bonnet!!

    Not a good time to be DE, it looks like they wont be promoted as per their contract. So better off not going DE or more to the point tech officer.

    Not a recognised third level qualification.

    You seem to misunderstand the concept of direct entry. Bringing a civilian qualification and using it in a military environment, after a period of military training.
    I know of no case where any military skill was sought under a DE scheme.

    I know 2 people that were DE entries into the CoE - this happened in the last 5 years, so its definitely still being used.
