What surprised people about this program of study?What surprised people about this program of study?

"i was surprised of the different requirements that are needed for a Power lineworker. For example, There is a pre-screening which involves physical activities. The college wants to make sure that you are able to be fit in the rigorous type of work that you will be working. Also, the college requires to have a copy of your DMV driving record. The reason is that most companies will not be hiring people with poor driving record specially in this field. Another requirement was to have completed two courses prior to getting into the program. The two courses were wiring and practices, and Principles of hand and power tools."
"I was surprised with the level of math classes I needed to take to get the degree. I wish I had prepared more before jumping into them."
"I thought there would be more job offers out there. If I would have known that I would've done something else."
