This is the story of how I ended up taking a working at heights training course for my new construction job in southern Ontario.
As a teenager I had my adult goals all planned out. I wanted to become an architect. I had planned all of my high school courses to fill all the pre-requisites post secondary education would have me already collected.
Once I finished high school I found myself slightly tweaking my previous plans to become an architect. I knew I wanted to work with my hands, creating and building. I didn’t want to just be behind a desk creating and imagining infrastructure into life.
When I was in high school I had taken a co-op course with a local home builder company. That was when I had decided to switch up the plan, I loved every days adventures of learning skills and collaborating.
It was when school ended that I had proven myself to the company and they hired me on as an apprentice. That was when I had some real training to do and realized I wasn’t doing all the heavy duty jobs I thought I was. Ha.
