Its really pretty easy. I looked into it myself lately but I dont have the hours to qualify quite yet. The website is a bit of a pain to navigate through... I just got to it through google... The base in Prince Rupert is currently taking applications for one available position. Although I am faily new to the idustry I think the wages are amazing! The requirements are 3000hrs turbine time... 2000PIC. Plus long line and all the other usual stuff. Hope this helps.
