For myself I'm looking to try work on the rigs this coming winter 2013/14. Driving out from Toronto in fall. Just saving up enough to make the transition and get Enform tickets when I arrive in Edmonton. Enform has a course called Oil &Gas Production Operator Basics - has anyone heard about this and whether it's worth it for those looking to get hired on the rigs?

Watched "Licence to Drill" Pretty tough looking environment these guys work in. That's a decent show by Discovery I'd recomend anyone watch that for a glance at what's comin. Found a short book about life on the rigs by Paul Carter "Dont Tell Mom I Work On The Rigs" It's fucked up and worth a read.

Thanks to the contributors here and best of luck to those near and far whom are Alberta bound.

Albertron, post up your progress on the rigs!
