Honestly I dont mind it, fills me up for ages, still knocking about on supermarket shelfs
.. also i think im in the same role i got FVR which i think is fault volume reduction? What were you told fvr was?
When do you get told about your role ? There's me thinking you only get to know your roles when you get to Yarnfield.
I guess Job title is the same for everyone Trainee Openreach Engineer but roles are different. What is the role code for FVR ? I just looked at one of my email from BT and it states role code: TMNE2 what ever that means. Anyone shed any light on this? I did initally apply for Openreach Network engineers role.
YOU DONT GET TOLD UNTIL YOU GET TO YARNFIELD YOUR ROLE,EVERYONE IS UNDER SERVICE DELIVERY TRAINEE OPENREACH ENGINEER,UNTIL YOU GET TO YARNFIELD THEN SOMETIMES YOUR ROLE AND EVEN YOUR TRAINNG CENTRE CAN CHANGE.
SO THERE IS THE MOST POPULAR ONE WHICH IS CANELO OR SOME INITIALS LIKE THAT WHICH IS UP THE POLES AND INTO CUSTOMERS HOUSES,AND THATS 12 WEEKS TRAINING.THEN THERE IS THE FVR(FAULT VOLUME REDUCTION)WHERE YOU ARE IN THE STREET CABS AND ALSO INSTALLING NEW ONES AND THE NEW TECHNOLOGY,OTHER BT ENGINEERS SAY THIS IS A GOOD ONE TO GET INTO AND ALSO YOU DO YOUR UNDERGROUND TRAINING QUICKER WHICH PUTS YOU ONTO A HIGHER PAY GRADE AFTER 12 MONTHS,THIS ONE IS 11 WEEKS TRAINING,THERE WAS ONLY 10 OF US OUT OF THE 64 THAT WERE DOING THIS.THERE IS ALSO A SPLICING ROLE WHICH IS DIFFERENT ALLTOGETHER AND IS 17 WEEKS TRAINING,THESE LADS KNEW THEY WERE ALLREADY DOING THIS AND THEY DONT GET A VAN AS THEY WILL BE OUT IN THE CHERRY PICKER VANS IN TEAMS.
IFYOU WERE INFORMED THAT YOU WERE GOING INTO FVR YOU WERE LUCKY AS NONE OF US 10 KNEW AND WERE ALL A BIT SUPRISED AS ITS A DIFFERENT TRAINING MATRIX TO THE ONE WE RECEIVED.AS I SAY IVE MISSED OUT AS NOT GOING BACK FOR 6-8 WEEKS BUT IM GETTING REGULAR TEXTS FROM MY MATE WHOS THERE GIVING ME THE HEADS UP ON ANYTHING.
