I was wondering if anyone here has gone to the Job Corps QMED/AB training at Tongue Point? I was told I’ll be put on “Work Base” by the councillor I talked to but didn’t specify when? I’m looking forward to it and while I gotta wait a little bit on my passport I got my TWIC card. Has anyone here been on “Work Based Learning?” How long does it last? I was told I could be stationed anywhere in the country? Has this happened to anyone? I’m really excited to do engineering since up to my 23rd birthday I been around Semis going cross country with my dad and been in school for machining and almost done getting my ata in welding.
My goal is to either get on with Foss or one of the Local tugs in Seattle-Tacoma or work on the container ships that go around the pacific. In my off time I plan to work up on my certs so I got more responsibility which means more fun. I been lurking on here time to time after I got my TWIC and Interview done. I’ll be on and off on here during my time there. Who knows I might meet one of you on a WBL.
For engineering in general what’s the most needed designation to go for? I understand on one form say QMED-Oiler another says DDE? Any recent graduates or currently enrolled Job Corps seamanship Students/alumni on here?
