The (Carpentry) program gave me a safe start and helped me build my confidence and knowledge. Once I had that, I was good to go.

My (Welding Inspection and Quality Control) diploma prepared me for all the levels – from 1 to 3 – so it's really just getting the time I need under my belt and writing the Canadian Welding Bureau tests, which I know I'm ready for.
