Today I passed it in when I got to the college I ended up talking to the top dog at the college and he took me to the place to sign up but then they sent me to a building down the street and the weather was very crappy i was wearing my old school chuck taylors and they where soaked but when I got to the building they let me use the phone I needed to call the instructer he had me up for a half day I got to weld with the boys and he told me to come up when ver I like and jsut be a part of the class he enjoys having me there so I guess if there was a interview I already got in I sold myself to him this year I talked to him since I was in grade 10 so im very confident ill be in but I should never count my chickens before they hatch. thanks for your thoughts triggerman

Hey i go to Greenville tech here in sc, and u dont really have to have anything to get in the welding program. He told us at one time they would rather u have no experience? its fun though, a little tough but i would not trade it for the world. our instructors come from flour, and one is a pipe welder at GE third shift. so the very best of luck to you and hang with it. dont give up

Are you taking shop in school? Because that will help you when you go to trade school.O ya by the way in trade school over there is it modular block step program?There is a different type of program if you read welding in Alberta on the motorsports Form and question coalsmoke about this he should have some answers for ya about the apprentiship program I dont know if where you live if you have the A B C levels or if it is just BC.Anyway check it out okay.Better to get started eary so you know what direction you want to go in life eh.O ya 5 months left to go with high school you must be happy about that?

Ohh you ment shop classes, I took the only welding course our school offered I finished that with a 81%. I also took a couple automotive courses. I welded in all of them. Im not sure how BC does it but we have jsut a ASAP program for youth trying to get into the trade. I am very happy only having a few months left in high school But for us we have a block release thing we do we spend 6 weeks in shop and 6 weeks out (I amnot 100% if thats the exact time but im almost positive). Or we have a choice we can just go out on the job and do a block release and jsut go back to write tests.
