    Tarpon pay for everything. Not much rotation work. I think studon is more rotation orientated.

    So most tarpon's work is all local in the city and 9-5 mon - fri...... Is that what your saying..... That would suit so much better, but the bloke I know is with tarpon and is on 14-7 rotation in fort mc....

    I turned down tarpons offer coz they couldn't guarantee me a rotation. Said to come over first and they will send me somewhere. I've a family here so not knowing when ill be home doesn't suit me.

    In in the same boat , wife and child here .... So I don't know if I'm understanding this correct ...by rotation you mean camp work yeah ? Fly in fly out every few weeks... This is what you want or not what you want.... If it is , would you try to come back to Ireland on your time off every few weeks ,am I taking this up correct or have I mixed myself up?


  • Registered Users Posts: 204 ✭✭gccrowley1


    Sorry I see on older posts you only interested in long rotation work....... How long can you get at a time...... I thought it was a max of 21 on 7 off.....


  • Registered Users Posts: 451 ✭✭Calgary22


    you can get 4 weeks on 4 weeks off but there as rare as hens teeth:D usually 14 on 7 off is the norm on oil rigs and 21 on 7 off in the oil sands for trades/labour work.

    Cheers Calgary22, and I just went back through the full 18 pages and seen I was talking to johnnyryan before, now I remember ya...... I'm back on track now, got a bit confused there for a while.... Studon would defo suit you johnnyryan , mainly 14 on 7 off but they told me sometimes ye can get 21 on 7 off..... I am thinking of doing going alone initially now and looking at flying back every week or second week off, depending on costs... They sent me all there shifts and locations and rates I can send on if ye like.... The only thing is they don't pay for anything.... Only a hotel for the first week....


  • Registered Users Posts: 204 ✭✭gccrowley1


    4 on 4 off would be ideal.... What are you looking for Calgary22? Are you sorted yet or what stage you at.....I know ya probably said earlier but I don't want to go through 18 pages again.... I can't remember who's comments are who's ...:)


  • Registered Users Posts: 451 ✭✭Calgary22

    ****!!!! I just copped I was talking to you too....as I said I can't remember the names if all the posts but I just had a look at your previous posts and found ye ... How far into the test are you..... Who is the instructor?


  • Registered Users Posts: 204 ✭✭gccrowley1


    Your doing the right thing..... It's a pain in the arse now for me , having to leave wife and young child for a while..... If it works out they can follow over for good but no point in all going over at the start until I sus it out and get some quick cash..... You have the IEC yea? What about an offer of employment....

    Welcome!!!!! Congrats !!!!!How did you get onto them.? Was it via mail/phone Or expo? What qualifications you got? How long did you take to get AIT aproval ????


  • Registered Users Posts: 4 mikeirish


    I met them at an Expo and had a skype interview towards the end of March. Sent off my AIT at the beginning of April and it took about 7 weeks to be approved. Presume LMO came back seeing as they are talking flights now. I am an Electrician- at it 16 years now. Hopefully will get more info on whats happening when i get flight details. They have not told me much at all.


  • Registered Users Posts: 67 ✭✭lovemytea


    my boyfriend got his approval during the week and flights booked for next week. all happens very quick. Have you heard back yet mikeirish?


  • Registered Users Posts: 4 mikeirish


    Hi, yes, I sent you a pm there. Heading over Wednesday. Just doing the safety training online at the moment.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2 seaflo


    Got the go ahead from Tarpon, contract signed. Anyone heading over to Edmonton next Wednesday? Or anyone over there know what happens when you get there?


  • Registered Users Posts: 67 ✭✭lovemytea


    There's 1 other lad coming over with you. They'll send out his email day before flight. 6 of us came over last wednesday, still can't believe our luck, going to be based in Edmonton and there's meant to be 5 years of work on the site we're on. We don't start work until Wednesday, have to do fall arrest course Tuesday. Really couldn't be happier with what's happened since we landed

    Tarpon is great but are they looking more for industrial electricians rather than domestic or commercial electricians?

    Anyone know of any domestic / commercial electricians looking to go to Alberta? I am working on an LMO for a company looking for these guys.

    Declan


  • Registered Users Posts: 79 ✭✭johnnyryan22


    Alberta is more geared towards industrial. There's very little money in domestic and commercial. I'd say you would find it difficult to find an lmo for that here in alberta. Try the bigger cities like Toronto or Vancouver. I know for certain they take foreigners on lmo for domestic and commercial.

    Hi Johnny,

    Maybe my message was unclear -

    I am working with a company in Alberta to secure their LMO for them at the moment.

    So if there are any domestic/commercial electricians looking at working in Alberta - I know a company that will be hiring shortly (CAD 36.45 basic).

    Thanks Declan


  • Registered Users Posts: 79 ✭✭johnnyryan22


    Ah I got ya. That's great! Good to know there are more companies opening their doors to foreigners. I'm in industrial up north myself but il keep and open ear.
