RE: Working in the Canadian oil sands: 6 figures in 6 months!
that explains the prices then haha!

I've been digging a bit deeper into my opportunities and I think I might want to become a power engineer. I'm tired as fuck right now, but from what I understand you can take distance ED courses at NAIT or BCIT etc and 'go at your own pace" before you challenge the exam.

Ideally I'd want to get the certs in Alberta, because it looks like you have to have actual plant time to challenge an inter provincial exam.

Theres a 4th class guy at my work and BCIT offers a reduced time period if you get 'sponsored'

I probably know half the shit already from my physics/math classes and could probably become a 4th class power engineer in a few months or maybe less. I got pretty good marks in uni and I didn't start learning till the day before the test.

The process seems too simple, am I missing something?
