Hi everyone, I am a mature person who is mid life and has been in at least three different careers. My Myers-Brigs state I am a INTP personality type. With my colors stating that I am a Green,Orange,Gold,Blue. I have been a helicopter tech in the USAF, a avionics graduate from a civilian FCC certified program. When the aviation sector crashed in the 90s, worked as a auto mechanic. I have worked in the fields of IT testing and IT support for a number of years but it was boring!. So, I have always enjoyed mythbusters series and thought, I would love to do similar work like that! . And I was wondering what types of material stress testing jobs are there in the industry? I imagine, working for a DOD civilian contractor would be the way to go and a university degree may be required. I currently live up here in Vancouver BC. The academic requirements are a bit different. There are programs that can teach students in the area of Technologist. A technologist is between a mechanic/technician and that of a engineer. So would like to get your input in this area. I am not ready for a four year degree, but perhaps two year program that can lead me into a position that is always changing. I like working with my hands, and outdoors or indoors when conditions are not warranted to work outdoors , or in a open environment like a hanger. Your response is much appreciated!
