“Dwight Allen is in the process of completing his Carpentry Apprenticeship Program at Algonquin College. Apprenticeship programs combine hours worked in the field with classroom training. Dwight has accumulated the required number of hours worked and once he completes his third level classroom training he will write his red seal exam to become a journeyperson carpenter. The red seal allows him the opportunity to take his qualifications into any province to obtain employment.” Rick Moore, President of the Kenora Construction Association.
“Nick Grolway has completed the first three levels of the Mobile Crain Apprenticeship Program. After 6,000 hours on the job he will return for the fourth and last in-class portion of his apprenticeship. Nick needs only 300 hours before he heads back to the Operating Engineers Training Institute of Ontario. Earlier this year, Nick competed in the Mobile Crane skills competition and finished second. Nick works for Jarnel Contracting and will soon become their second journeyperson in this certification.” Rick Moore, President of the Kenora Construction Association.
