ONGOING TRAINING/DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITIES
As your career progresses, you will develop your production engineering techniques and we’ll continue to train you in new skills. You will learn many processes and use a much wider range of equipment than you might come across outside the RAF. You will receive advanced training in welding, turning, milling and sheet metalwork using computer numerical controlled applications. There are also opportunities for management and leadership training; in addition, the qualifications and experience you’ll gain in your RAF career can be used to meet the joining criteria for relevant civilian professional associations.
YOUR FIRST TOUR
For your first tour, you will probably be posted to an RAF base, where you will be involved in production engineering and the repair and manufacture of equipment essential to the support of RAF activities; you will have a key role in supporting the station’s mission and you will form part of a professional team.
