Our business development team along with Alanna Marklund from UA Canada, Jason Hooper-welding examiner, as well as our RAP graduate-19 year old Journeyman B pressure welder Josh Lefebvre (!!) representing UA Local 488 at the Skills in the Heartland event this week at the DOW Center in Fort Saskatchewan. This was a great opportunity to showcase and promote the skilled trades to over 500 students from surrounding schools! Students were given a chance to try out our state-of-the-art virtual welding simulators and find out more about what the UA can offer for rewarding careers in the trades!
