Further congratulations to Trevor as he has just been signed as an apprentice welder.  Special thanks to Russ Jennings at United Engineering for supporting our Youth Trades Programs. 
Trevor Chown graduated from the Foundation Welding Program in January 2018. Currently working shifts at the United Engineering welding I-beams and steel trusses, he hopes to be taken on as an apprentice at United Engineering but has also been offered an apprenticeship at Seaspan. On completion of his red seal in welding, he plans to further his training towards another Red Seal in sheet metal fabrication. Trevor will be awarded with the Top Foundation Student Award at the Camosun Trades & Technology Awards ceremony in May 2018. He is excited for his future and recommends his fellow students to connect with career counselors and shop teachers to discuss dual credit opportunities in Trades & Technology at Camosun.
