Currently looking into becoming a 1st year apprentice mechanic, now that I'm mature age. It makes it harder to gain entry to some places, but I can expect around $300p/w as opposed to the $220p/w that a mate of mine makes as a 19yo 1st year. :)

when i started my parts interpreter apprenticeship 3 years ago i was on 6.69and hour, i think im around 12 an hour now, about to finish next week :) i get about $400 -$450 a week. but i get paid bonusus and overtime through my host employer not my apprentieship provider which bumps it up quite a bit.

^^^ Damn... that sucks! But I guess you're still learning... like my gf is in her last year of uni to be a nurse... and they work at various hospitals getting experience... for free... But still... takes a fair bit of commitment to work 40 hours for 164 bux!

Wow that's pretty low. My partner is a 1st year apprentice boiler maker. Mature-age works from 6.00 till 4 monday to fir and 6 to 12 on sat and brings home just over $600 a week.
I dont think that's too bad
