Well, I can't give you the questions now can I? Tests will vary in a given area, however, expect a section on math, rigging, welding procedures, blueprint reading, and machine nomenclature at minimum. We give a test based on the same questions our graduating apprentices take. Ther are no shortcuts to be a journeyman, study hard. Regards, Rocky

When you ask for help on this message board it is simply posted to the board. If you need assistance try e-mailing directly to some of the great millwrights who have posted answers at their e-mail address. Regards, Rocky

Well, it will probably be the last time if you prepare properly. Having done the test you now understand the format and areas you will be questioned on. I know of some who have failed simply because they failed to follow directions properly. (One of the things you are being tested on.) If the instructions say carry an answer to three decimal places youe answer is not 3 or 3.0, it is 3.000!

Test 'jitters' are common and easy to understand when facing the unknown. You now have a much better idea of what to review and probably a recollection of the areas where you needed better preperation.

I think you will do much better next time. Best Regards, Rocky

The first question that is asked on the Exam is on ordering steel I think.. does any one remember the question I am talking about..It asks if you were to order (this is just a figure that comes to mind) not the real number 1435cte16 what would you be ordering.. A. cold rolled steel B. rebar. C. L-Shaped rebar D. High Carbon Pipe. If you know what the question was please e-mail me back at..!!

-- Dave (, December 29, 2003.

I don't understand the problem people are having writing the IP, here in Manitoba we have a 99% pass rate and the test is no different here than it is in any other province.

Hi, my husband is writing his test on Tuesday Feb. 22. I can see that he is starting to get a little nervous. A few of his buddies have written the test and so far all have just passed. A couple of them wrote down some qustions that they could remember. I made a test out of it for him with approximately 165 questions on it. Maybe I could exchange with someone these questions for there? He seems to be worried about formulas... Thanks Loranger
