Hey There MKCanuck, you might want to do some research into applications. Certainly follow the path
of career and skill development, but allow yourself room for creativity. When the buzzer rings, you have to
produce. The ideal would be that you would be producing a product of your own design, or at least an
improvement on a current design. It would not hurt for you to use some of your excess energy to focus
on patents and trademarks. In fact, some of the best examples of this never made it to Level 4.
In other words, be focused, but not so magnified that you lose sight of your surroundings and who you are.
Make something that you are proud of and when you are ready,share it with us.
Best to You
(scratches head…) That sounds like the Canadian version of our “boiler engineer”
Taking one of those specialized courses on your own is kind of putting the cart before the horse. Industrial employers will normally run selected existing employs through those programs. They don’t hire someone because he has taken that course.
The reason why is…… Usually jobs like that are so specialized that the employer has to run you through a specialized course that is tailored to that job.
The only reason why a person would take that on their own is if they wanted to help out at an antique railroad company and needed the certificate to operate the steam engine. Or to run their own pressure fired equipment in their own privet business
