"The challenges I faced at Skills Canada are similar scenarios that I face daily on the job. It's a great way for you to challenge your skills and meet others in the trade"
"A regular day? Never had one. That’s what I like about my job. One day I could be troubleshooting issues with a modern natural gas engine and the next could involve crawling into a hydro turbine performing inspections. It puts all areas of my trade to the test and pushes me to become a better technician every day."
"The best part of my trade is the dynamics involved. Although it may apply to other trades as well, I find that cooking has so many opportunities. There is so much variation that no two days need to be the same if I choose. Endless combinations of ingredients and processes make each meal an exciting adventure in itself."
