212wrench Posted February 9, 2007 Report Share Posted February 9, 2007 I made a post in the Going to BCIT thread about Apprentices and would you hire correspondance folks or people who came out of school with a letter of attendance instead of a diploma. The question was that maybe we should open this up for some discussion. So here it is. Who hires folks who take AME by correspondence? Also the schools, because DOT tells them, will graduate folks who do not meet the 70% pass mark. They have to obtain a 60% mark in the program and will be given what is called a letter of attendance. They will be given 1000 hours of credit (as opposed to 1800hrs which you get with a 70% pass mark) and will have to write their DOT exams. when they are able to prove that they have obtained the other 3800 hours of experiance when they go to get their license. Students who make the 70% grade write there exams in school and only have to write the Air Regs exam when they go to get there license. That being said, whould you hire a apprentice who walks in your door with a letter of attendance? What are the best attributes that an apprentice should emphazise to you when applying for a job How about after if you hire them? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
