    My dh is a panel bearer/spray painter by trade, he was his dads apprentice straight from school, they then ran the business together. He was then in the navy for a few years before going into the drilling game working his way up from an offsider, trainee driller to a driller and then he was in the police force for 12yrs, loved the job and does miss it but not near enough money for the shiftwork, over time and stress. So then he went back to being a driller working offshore for a while and now he is the superintendant of the drill and blast crew. He gets $150,000 per year plus extra super, income protection insurance and a nice bonus on his anniversary date every year and doesn't have nightshift. At times in between he's been a truck driver and has driven buses at times for his friends bus company. He has many different licenses and he has also done lots of study along the way including getting his training and assessment diploma and occ health and safety diploma.

    Hubbie is support services mgr for a mining & construciton equipment dealer on $135k + extras.

    He was a heavy duty diesel mechanic and worked FIFO and rural for a number of years before getting into some entry level supervision / management positions and working his way up.

    I work in construction and would recommend it to anyone looking for a reasonable paying job!

    Oh and as for something to study - I have an engineering degree and am now completing law degree. I'd definately recommend the engineering degree, opens up all sorts of doors in interesting fields of work.

    The law degree is to supplement the type of work I'm doing at the moment, I could never be a straight out lawyer!
