Hello. I am interested in being a quality control inspector as a career. I recently took one of those job placement tests and it said a suitable job for me would be this. It sounds very interesting and exciting to me and I think I would be well suited for it as well. But I don't know much about it. I am wondering if any of you guys are in this career can tell me about your job and what training you needed to get there. I did a search of local schools in Vancouver, B.C. and the closest training I could find for it was at BCIT for "Quality Control Inspector Management Certificate" which is I think not what I want. I am interested in know what the salary ranges are as well. Do I need a B.A.? B.Sc.? Or a certificate. I am guessing this is quite a large field but when I imagine myself in this position, I visualize myself going into like industrial plants and buildings and making sure that all their equipment and products is within the proper range and standards. For example, like testing to make sure their water or other liquid is within acceptable ranges. Please educate me. Currently I am going to a local college and am in my first year of college towards a B.A.
