Yeah, but it was buried in the small print! Ha, ha.

And ... beware the invisible man!

Meanwhile, 14 pages and counting ... could this turn out to be the longest ever thread? Just goes to show how high feelings run on this issue, I 'spose. smile

Sorry, sunshine - have a look at "Jokes 2 (Son of Jokes)" in "Out of Hours". It's up to page 18, and I reckon half of that is me!!! AND there's still more to come!

I have been catching up on this thread since logging off yesterday:

Colin - makes very valid points that people do come into the medical engineering world from other trades, if a person has the technical ability then why not employ him.

Geoff - i think we could get at least 20 pages on this!

DW - Still not a real welder!

Sorry, Naitch, but frivolity like that doesn't count, I'm afraid. If we really wanted to fill up Huw's hard-drives, we could cut-and-paste all day, could we not? smile

Darth ... can anyone tell me the name of anyone who hasn't come into biomed from some other trade? And, while we're at it (and filling up the pages), why don't we start a list of all the feeder trades? Here's the first one:-

1) REME ECE (Control Equipment Technician) used to working on battle tanks, weapon systems, field gun equipment etc.

I have the following in my workshop:

3) REME Instrument Tech - All types of optical equipment.

4) REME Radar Tech - Mortor tracking systems, Rapier and a few other bits.

5) Royal Scots Dragoon Guards Challenger Driver - Self Explanatory!

Thank goodness I do not have any REME Tels techs, they are generally hard work! The remainder here are all ECES, however we do have a suspect ECE i.e. he has not done a Med Man in BATUS, so we are not sure if he is a real ECE (The jury is stll out on his ECE credability).

That's No.6, then. smile

ECE : see my previous post.
BATUS : never mind (there's a million more, so don't encourage them)!
