"This program gave me more confidence about what I bring to the job, and how to work efficiently with the other trades. I've also taken some business courses while I've been here, which helped me realize that I do have what it takes to either start my own business, or manage someone else's." ~ Brad P., Building Trades Apprentice Program.
