You know that the salary of a SC and a SC is different by 1k++?
If you sign as a RC, you need to go through a officer tour. You will be probaly staying in fire station as a rc for 1 year only then post out to somewhere eles(HQ,marine fire station, CDA, NSTI) depend on their manpower. Maybe after a few years you might come back to fire station to serve as a commander of fire station.
Yeah can try for specialised unit like Marine. Sure get to play the toys everyday. Once specialised, most likely you stay there longer.

The Marine commander is my former OC. No nonsense fella. Hard but fair. Nothing but respect for him.

I will advice you to left your degree out of CV to complicated recruitment process cause Recruiter may reject you cause you are over qualified.

So they will pay you & offer you the rank of CPL or SGT base on your next highest qualification like Nitec, Higher Nitec, Polytechnic Diploma, GCE A but never recognized Private Diploma.


Ikr...that's why I feel quite conflicted. A degree but signing as a section commander cause I wanna do more groundwork rather than administrative work...

SC mostly is SGT or SSG. Needs to fight for WO2 promotion in order to consider for the next ground appointment which is Dy RC.

Ebb degree is private degree? If really private degree, can forget about SO interview. Private degree is worse off than SIM deg hor.

But if got recognised degree, best go thru SO application. If can get in congrats, next time sian can apply other ministry SO position as Div 1 officer.
