RE: Working in the Canadian oil sands: 6 figures in 6 months!
Ferro,
My understanding is that the course at
nait is one semester long and more of an overview of the o&g/ndt industries while the course I registered for is only one week long focusing on only one very specific non destructive testing method. Hence the tuition difference.

Also while both are valuable courses, technically you dont need any of them. But they sure help you be better prepared and show to prospective employers that you are serious and are in this for the long term. This can play to your favour in getting hired faster.

In both cases, whether you do take any such courses or not,you will start at the bottom as a trainee.
Hope this helps.
