After much ranting and many knock backs.....I've got an apprenticeship!
I applied for a pre-apprenticeship course through Apprenticeships Victoria, but turns out they didn't have the numbers for the course, so they found apprenticeships for the best few who applied (or so they told me).
So instead of forking out for a $600 course I'm getting paid for a few weeks training then off to an apprenticeship. Very happy with that!
Now I'll have a cash flow the mods will keep coming to the car.....MWA HAHAHAHAHA!
Congratulations psycho, good to see it has payed off for you. As I write this I notice Costanzo Ford in Bundoora are still looking for apprentice mechanics....even after I was knocked back a couple months ago.....
Would you like to change your name to Homer Junior? People can call you Hoju.
Good luck mate, and you are right the money mighten be all that good to start with but it's better than nothing and the future is there to be able to move up in whatever trade you are going into,which by the way lead's me to my next question, what is your apprenticeship in?.

Brings back memorys. When i started ny apprenticeship i was getting $80 a week. I worked in a large Holden dealer, we used to do a lot of work for HDT in house, exhaust systems, carbys/manifolds on VH and VK Commodores, we also did the interceptors for the cops, those interceptors had the same running gear as the Group 3 HDT's, they were real sleepers, went like shit off a shovel.
Enjoy your time, bloody great days they were for me.
