Karir, what trade you in? Are you a pipe liner? Did you enter through the provisional journeymen program?
Im not sure I would ever want to be a pipe liner cause I dont want to leave my family for long periods of time. But I do want to set up a welding rig and be done with my fab shop.
Im wondering, cause I am a little older and more experienced, not sure I want to go through a 4 year apprenticeship program.
Are these tests crazy hard to pass? Im not that afraid. I have experience welding carbon, SS and aluminum pipe and I have my own shop to practice in. I just hear so much from pipe liners and what not that I should just forget it cause it is soooo hard. They say the contractors rep just watches you strike an arc and then says "thanks for coming out" as if they do not want anyone really.
I can pass these tests with a little practice. Just waiting to get caught up a little and I am gonna make up some coupons on the lathe. Ill post pics here for sure, maybe you can make a visual assessment for me?
Thanks for the info.
Have you taken any of the downhill 7010 tests? I have never done any of that.
Welding everything from the crack of dawn to a broken heart.
