I was looking for a career change and was considering something in the construction industry. I am one of the first graduates of the program and currently enjoying my work as a professional plumber.



Plumbing was not something I had ever considered, but after visiting the state-of-the-art facilities at the Pearson Electrotechnology Centre, I could visualize myself practicing the trade. The program is challenging, applicable, useful, fun, and extremely important. Thank you for this opportunity.
