Going through the licensing process ? Have queries, comments, or do you need an answer to that obscure exam question ? This is the place to post.

Upgrading to 1st or 2nd Class on Vancouver Island ?

Postby The Dieselduck » Mon Apr 21, 2008 12:55 pm

If you are on Vancouver Island (I am in Nanaimo) and are looking to upgrade to a second or first class license - you are not alone.

I am looking for anyone interested in pooling resources - which I have much of - and bouncing ideas and study skills between us, in order to facilitate the exam process, in particular, the Part A exams (Mechanics, Thermo, Electro etc).

Interested ? Drop me an email and we will go from there.

Hi Fritz,

That's great to hear. Unfortunately I am in Nanaimo, and not often in Langley so logistically speaking it may be a bit awkward. But I do have resources and I can do video chats through skype. Preferably though it would be best to close ourselves in a room and dig at it.

I will be writing my Part A Examinations shortly. From what I was told, it is wise to study all the reed's practice examination questions.

Good luck guys. Obviously I wouldn't be able to physically study with you guys, as I am in ontario.

Hi.

There are a great set of example questions on the transport canada website.

I will be working on them shortly... if anyone needs solutions (or wants to compare solutions anyway) I can scan my answers as I get them.

Good luck again

It's nice set-up. You will get CD with material and access to their intranet,
but I don't think they have enough instructors to run this programm.

Can you post a link to those questions on the transport Canada site Wes?
