    B149.1 and B149.2 - 10 CSA Code books

    This question is more for the Canadians on here.
    I am taking the GT3 course and almost done, and trying to read the code book is the most boring read ever, Is there an easier way to navigate the code book, I find myself bouncing forward and backward throughout the book looking for certain codes.

    Welcome to the world of code books. Nice if they had a copy of the B149 that was done up up like a comic book.
    There'd be pictures of things blowing up, service tech in the air on fire.
    Boilers going through a wall.
    Big pipe with a flame at the end.
    People sleeping all the time.
    ENJOY THE RIDE

    There is a quick reference guide, that keeps the important stuff.
    I used sticky tabs and dividers in my code book with labels.

    Aren't you allowed to bring your code into the test?

    Take the time now to learn the code book. It's boring as all ever, but well worth it. It will help you greatly for the exam and on the job

    Grab a set if page markers, and mark the important charts and clauses as you find them.

    In Ontario at least, you can bring your B149 into the exam, you can mark it up as much as you want (highlights and underlining) but you cannot write in it

    A well marked and understood code book can be a very useful tool on the job

    I wrote the exam yesterday, I am very confident that I passed and I have an in at a company to start in the field, which is amazing. I was reading some of the stories about calls on here and laughed my ass off, looking forward to writing some of my calls on here.
