Re: Final Session Of Trade School


Well, I went from a really good school in level 1 to a really crappy school in level 2. Every school does stuff a bit different. But yes there was a number of drawings. There was one big cross sectional view drawing that was the main/final project. You had to use the code book to find out what was required and then draw it and label it all. Also a lot of layout techniques with a compass and squares. Pretty neat stuff actually. If you want to get ahead of the game, have a look at the book "Construction Geometry" by Brian Walmsly. It was all based out of there

Well you'll probably end up doing drawings for your roof projects. A useful one was for our unequal pitched roof. A plan view drawing so that all the ridge deductions can be measured and scaled when you go to build it.

Re: Final Session Of Trade School


Just signed up for Jan 2015 intermediate schooling!
I would have liked to do it later this year, and do my advanced in 2015 but i think winter is the best time to be inside.

Awesome Nick! How did you get signed up so far ahead of time? You'll like going in January. Miss the worst weather of the year, it's a nice break.

Only reason I ask Is because I'm surprised. Usually they send you a letter (an offer of classroom training) and I've never heard of anyone getting in earlier then say 4 months ahead the scheduled class time.

I hate those new books. I liked the old text book and work book combo. They switched half way through my apprenticeship..

Re: Final Session Of Trade School


I wouldn't know, I've only used the ILMs for carpentry. I got a welding ticket 6 years ago that was out of these big yellow ring bound modules but it seems most Canadian red seal trades have moved to the ILMs now. We do use this book as a supplement to the modules though:

Useful book, I keep it in my truck, some of the span tables have come in handy.

I got the 1970's version of that haha. Gift from my grandfather. He got it when he built his farmhouse all those many years ago

Re: Final Session Of Trade School


Alright! Finished all my finals and managed to pass the course with an overall mark of 88%!

Training standard is all signed off and handed in. I start the prep course Monday and write the Red seal the Friday. Everything is finally comin' up Milhouse!..... All that's left to do is study my a$$ off for the next week and hopefully I get a lot out of this course as well, then write it!

Re: Final Session Of Trade School


Well, wrote this morning. I think it went well but I wont know my mark for at least a week. The waiting game sucks... Been fighting a nasty head cold for a few days and to make things worse I couldn't sleep a wink last night. Not an ideal way to show up to any exam let alone one this important. I was pretty groggy and not at my best forsure, I'll admit I had to guess on a few questions, but I didn't get frustrated and I did complete everything in time. We'll see....

Good luck, bud! I am sure you did great.

I had a cigar and bottle of rum that I wasn't allowed to touch until I found out my results. It was a glorious day when I got them.
