My son wanted to be a gunner in the Army (Defence Force). He was a young, sensible and studious man at 20 and was about to complete a course at Computer Power Institute. During the latter part of his course, he worked in IT part time and went to full time after graduating, assisting with the new photo Driver Licence Register; updating database tables, moving GUI screens, generating systems and providing administrative support. When he was ready to apply for the Army, their response was, “You have experience and an IT qualification and you could be more help in the technical arena!”. He completed a couple of extra tests and was assigned to the Signalling Core as a Communications Systems Officer, where he stayed for two years.

The Army’s next step was to offer him an important role to serve the Special Air Service Group (SAS). Literally, he was seconded to work at the SAS base and learn about the new signalling devices that were to be deployed. Initially, there were only a few people given access to the devices and he was one of them. He was responsible for a range of communications systems including SATCOM, HF, VHF and UHF radios, gaining experience with tactical, operational and strategic communications equipment. Soon after, he was training new SAS candidates in how to use them.

very lucky of your son! Sounds like the selection program is no at all strict. I assumed a lot of confidentiality issues working for a such organisation.
