Scotian, what do you think about this pre-apprenticeship course?
http://www.sait.ca/programs-and-courses/...erview.php
Pipefitting Technician

Quote:
24-week Certificate
Fall and winter starts
New industry-driven offering
High industry demand

Program Description

This program is an excellent way to accelerate your career in the pipefitting trade. Over the course of this 24-week program you will learn the skills and theory taught in the first and second period of the Steamfitter/Pipefitter apprenticeship program. You will learn how to install, maintain, troubleshoot and repair equipment and become knowledgeable in areas such as blueprint reading, rigging and hoisting and pipe fabrication and assembly.

Upon successful completion of your first 12 weeks, you will be eligible to write the first period Pipefitting apprenticeship exam. At the end of the 24 weeks, providing you pass the first period exam and the last 12 week of the course, you will be eligible to write the second period Pipefitting apprenticeship exam.

I'm interested in it because it's actually cheaper than other pre-employment courses I've found and it's also more comprehensive. The tuition is only $2,238.

btw, we have to be signed up as an apprentice and complete the min required hours before we can challenged the tests, correct?
