I recently got laid off, I was working as a finishing carpenter but I'm wanting to look into a new trade and get into an apprenticeship. I just started looking into this today but from what I understand I would first take an entry level pipe fitting course(which I would do at BCIT) and then after I complete that I would have to find a pipe fitting company to sponsor my apprenticeship. I would then go to BCIT in there apprenticeship program and do some class work then quite of bit of on job training then back in class and so on. Just wondering if i have the basic idea of how this works, and looking for any advice on becoming a pipe fitter.

the best way to start is getting on with a company like flint energy or ledcore in ft macmurray and have them ENDENTURE you so you can get a blue book to keep track of your hours. once endentured your rate increases as a first year anyway. 1866goflint is a good number to call to get that first position.
