Oh Ya Baby!

Tim wrote his FINAL exam as an apprentice electrician today. He called me to say it was super hard and he passed. Which is AWESOME! We won't know his actual mark as they will mail that to us. They test administrators just tell you pass or fail. My husband is now a Journeyman Electrician. Sweet stuff! I'm so proud of him and all the hard work he put into his apprenticeship these last 4 years. Good job Tim!


So that's what Tim was up to for 3 hours this morning. And he had to go back again this afternoon at 1:00 for a 4 hour Red Seal (Inter-Provincial) test. When he passes that test he'll be able to work not just in Alberta as a Journeyman, but in any province in Canada, except Quebec of course. They've got their own "French" ways there.


Well, that's our good news! Tim's back to work on Monday with a 25% pay raise (yes, not only does he get his entitled 20% raise from becoming a Journeyman, but his boss gave him an additional 5% raise). Well, I guess we're on to Phase II of our lives now....
