I got my industrial electrical red seal first then worked in the oil sands, went back to school and got my instrumentation red seal. Employers do not want to teach you your second ticket I found because you go back to being a apprentice. Is it worth it? God yes. Being a dual ticket E&I is the new standard unless you like to just terminate cables and tyrap teck cable. Right after I was done school I got a E&I coordinator position with the power generation utility. 160 a year, 40 hours a week, doubletime for all overtime. 13.8 kv synchronous generator controls. I would NEVER get the opportunity to be exposed to any of the governor controls without being dual ticket. Life is competitive. Absolutely dual ticket.

I could do the rest of the blocks needed for Industrial, but at the end of the day I'm still an electrician. What other tools did you need for instrumentation? Do I need a new meter or would a Fluke T5-1000 do for now?

Who was in your class? I know a few guys who may have gone through around the same time.

I was working in a PulpMill when BC brought in the Instrumentation TQ and we were in the early group of guys writing the TQ exam.
