Thanks lawrencee, I took them already. It's a good stuff!
I'm just asking maybe somebody else has more different, it would be great.

Hi Apprentice,
How did your exam go? what is the result (in your opinion)?
I got the letter, my the next exam will be 22. With notice, that I can try only 3 times, left 2 . It makes me nervous. I don't have enough information.

[QUOTE=tomsheetmetal;15337]Hi Bud,
Could you help me with e few questions, please? I'm sorry I'm new (only 1y experience), so I'm trying to learn and to figure out about more things. I can't find the correct answer for these questions:

If you only have 1 year of experience then why are you writing the red seal? Haven't you gone to trade school?

Default hmm

yeah i just read this why are you trying to get seal with only a year of exp? whats the point.. your going to be useless to any employer.. they will send you packing after a few weeks if you have your ticket and no xperience.. its just not wise.. with experience comes problem solving.. sheet mental is all about problem solving through experience..
you are doing yourself a great disservice..
if i hired a journeyman and sent them off to site and they could not perform like a they should they would be gone..it takes years of on the job training before you can even think about being a qualified tradesman.. the test is for apprentices not people who think they can just the jump the cue to the front and write it and boom your a journeyman!

think about it.. ! you will have a hard time finding a steady job ..not good for workplace reputaion also.. challenged the test.. didnt do the time..

imo .. i dont have respect for that and i dont think you will find many others in the trades that will give you the creds.. i find it actually a little insulting that someone can think they go in and write and exame and boom journeyman.. i worked to hard for that to make any kind of sense to me at all..

you get no help from me boo hooo!

and no soup for you either!

Been a while since I've logged onto this site, and since my last post yes I failed the test for the second time.
I'm not sure what my problem is but I've started to study again recently after working like crazy in toronto, bowmanville, barrie, oshawa, ottawa...... Almost everywhere!
I consider myself a good sheet metal worker, I just can't pass this damn test!
Call it nerves, call it whatever but I was in the mid 80% range all through trade school @ George Brown.
If anyone has any ideas or wants to tutor me (for cash of course) I would really love the help.
