Question though....I thought you had to be a Journeyman plumber to apply? no? Can you apply for the plumbing and heating tech as a apprentice?

yes, you would likely come in as unskilled vs semiskilled or skilled

You don't require any qualifications or prior experience to apply for the PH Tech Occupation (Plumbing and Heating Technician), only the willingness and ability to undertake the training.  ( http://www.forces.ca/en/job/plumbingandheatingtechnician-59 )

Got a question that you're afraid to ask online?  PM me!  I don't bite........

Hoping to hear from someone in the trade plumbing and heating tech.
I am 4th year plumber. Already passed medical and interview.
Want to know how much plumbing and heating you guys actually do. If there is no work, do you guys have to be at the end of a broom or mop?
How much opportunity is there to work overseas? Build / maintain bases or humanitarian missions?
I am 30 years old, if all goes good I plan to retire in the military. Realistically what rank would I be able to reach?

Thanks to all that reply
