Back to School

Just thought I'd let you all know I'm going back to BCIT for my second year automotive apprenticeship training. I'll be at school for six weeks, and then its back to work at BMW. I'll be a third year apprentice and exactly halfway through. It'll be a nice change of pace and I'll be off at 2:30 pm everyday . So wish me luck!

Do you get paid for going to it? Congrats, sounds like fun and you get off at 2:30. What time, and for that matter, what date will you start?

Yes,
Thanks,
It starts at 7:30 am which is an hour earlier than work which sucks but at least it beats rush hour a bit,
Monday.

Good luck! I hope it goes well. The early finishes sound good, too....but then the early starts don't, lol! Having said that, it doesn't take long to adjust...My early shifts start at 7am, which means I have to be up a about 4am....I don't need an alarm clock anymore.
