Information Circular No 11/2010: STATUS OF PRE-1994 ENTRANTS WHO RE-ENLIST TO UNDERGO THE TRAINEE TECHNICIAN SCHEME

By Industrial Relations Officer

Pre-1994 members have contacted PDFORRA regarding their status where they are discharged and re-enlisted to undergo the trainee technician scheme.

 These doubts arose because the Military Authorities were unsure whether or not such individuals should be treated as pre or post 1994 entrants from the point of view of medical classification standards; fitness standards; overseas service and related matters – particularly in respect of extension, re-engagement or continuance in service.  This became an issue where pre-1994 entrants re-enlisted after 1994 to undergo the trainee technician scheme.

 In PDFORRAs view pre-1994 entrants who re-enlisted after 1994 retained their existing status as pre-1994 entrants and legal opinion supported this view.
