I'm currently taking a PE course in Ontario but my goal was always, and still is to get a position out in the oil sands preferably a FIFO camp job or around Edmonton. Also I wondered if to be a to get into Instrumentation Tech do you have to take a course or can you get in an union and get into an apprenticeship with no experience?

There's lots of power engineers employed throughout Alberta, every oil sands operation has them as do all of the plants in Alberta's "Industrial Heartland", Fort Saskatchewan. Plenty of opportunities for FIFO jobs or Edmonton based. I"m not too sure about the instrument tech course or if you can just join the union, call the union or NAIT to find out.

Don’t sweat the petty things, pet the sweaty things.
