The new series follows these tough men and women entering various workforces -- from Redwood Forest arborists to acrobatic bush pilots, from heavy haul truckers to iron erectors, from commercial divers to volcanologists -- as these rookies must learn the ropes and prove their skills and determination to their mentors and peers.

This heart-pounding new series premieres Friday, Jan. 29 at at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Discovery.
