Local 853 would like to congratulate Ryan Young on winning the International Apprentice Contest in Ann Arbor, Michigan this year. Ryan fought a hard competition against 6 other apprentices from the United States and Australia, and after 5 days of being tested to the highest standards emerged victorious. Ryan represented 853 and Canada with poise and dignity, and we wish him the best in his career.
This week also saw instructor Jason Thompson complete the ITP (Instructor Training Program). For the last 4 years, Jason has been attending the ITP program in Ann Arbor as well as attending additional regional courses to receive his certificate. We would like to congratulate him for all of his hard work and dedication.
