The SOGE Story – Yokogawa@Bangkok

January 31, 2010

In our continuing saga to improve the skills and products available to our clients, I was sent to attend a training course entitled ‘TÜV Rheinland Functional Safety Program – Yokogawa course provider for the Safety Training’, from 26th – 29th January, 2010. The course climaxes with a 4 hour exam, upon which a pass mark (> 75%) enables me to call myself a ‘TÜV FS Engineer’. Needless to say, I walked out of the exam at about the 1 1/2 hour mark, reckoning that staring at the paper for another 3 hours won’t improve matters much.

You need at least a BEng and 8 (eight) years related experience. Don’t come crying to me if they reject you because you only have 5 years. Hah, they want you to bring their latest resume (no CVs), to passport photos, NRIC, academic qualifications and last 3 pay slips (of course, everyone will bring in ‘adjusted’ slips if they had any sense).

I really can’t recommend any food places this week. I’m in Miri, and nothing local catches my attention. For those knowing me, it would mean the places I’ve eaten till now must really be blah. C’mon people, send me your contact details and take me (and my family) out for dinner!
