RE: Working in the Canadian oil sands: 6 figures in 6 months!
I finally spoke to the welding team.

They told me that welding is a compulsory trade. In order for me to work in Canada, i will need to have 54 months experience as a welder and that they consider you a welder based on your length of experience and not on your qualifications.So if i was to take a level 1 or level 2 qualification in welding in the UK, they wouldnt even consider it.

They also told me that i can only do an apprenticeship program in welding if i am a canadian resident or if i have a canadian citizenship. They recommended me to do something else when i arrive in Alberta.

I am confused now, welding was probably the only trade i was excited to work.
