    So right now I'm debating between EM or ET. Can anyone give me some information as to how A school is like or what kind of experiences they had on the cutter. Pros and Cons any of that time of information. Thankyou

    EM is an engineering rating, ET is not, in general. I can only speak from experience as an ET but I do work with EMs daily. Here's the bottom line: if you plug it into the wall, it's an ET thing. If it deals with the wall outlet and further back, that's an EM thing. It's not a hard and fast rule since things are hard wired into ships, but that'll give you an idea anyway. On my FRC we work wit hour seawatch system a LOT underway, which is essentially all computers. As an ET on an FRC you will be an ET/IT/OS combined. it's a lot of work. EMs do EOW underway and work with electrical systems and genreators and whatnot, but they also do almost as much MK type work, but happening to specialize in electrician stuff. I love being an ET and not being the go-to guy for painting and slave labor, but rather troubleshooting and fixing things that go wrong. You also get to spend lots of time in the AC working. We in the operations department get called bridge fairies. it's cool though. I like AC

    Shore-side, ETs usually work at ESD's, doing maintenance and PMS on smaller cutters and stations (since bigger cutters have their own ETs to do their work onboard). ESD's are 5 year billets now.
    EMs are a VERY seagoing rating, almost as much as FS. I don't even know what they do when theyre not assigned to cutters... base EOW maybe? Base electrician? Galley appliance technician? I dunno...

    There are a few stations that have EMs, and then they might be a part of a MAT team also. But yes, they are underway a lot
    Take what you like and leave the rest behind.

    We have them on the MAT in Miami and when I was on the MAT in MI we had some.

    Rfail.. you're right across the pier from me. At some point we need to run into one another.
