RE: Working in the Canadian oil sands: 6 figures in 6 months!
This CSTS course is driving me insane! I know 99% of the stuff already, just wish I didn't have to watch all these stupid videos. Hoping to get it out of the way this afternoon.. Got my H2S certificate yesterday. Going to drop off my resume at a few of the offices in Calgary then head up to Nisku/Edmonton this week and hit the pavement. Will go to the labourers union as well and see if they will take me on. Have a few connections with a unionized company so its a prerequisite to getting hired on. Hoping H2S and CSTS will suffice but might take First Aid/CPR as well so i'm a little more qualified. Have a few years of labour experience, on and off construction sites so hopefully that gives me a little edge. I quit my job and gave my landlord notice I was leaving so the safety nets are kinda gone now.. Love diving straight into things, always makes for some interesting experiences. Might have to sleep in my truck for a couple nights Tongue
