On November 24, 2018, the Training Centre hosted its Annual Apprentice Contest for the 8th year at its facility in Surrey BC. The contest brought out over 20 contestants from over a dozen contractors competing in four levels aligned with their last year of technical training. Thanks to the generosity of 20 plus sponsors, the contest gave away over $7,000 worth of prizes to the participants. As in previous years, the shop portion drew the most spectators — participants assembled different projects for each level. These ranged from an aluminum hinged ammo-style box to on-centre and off-centre square to round fittings and a copper bucket, showcasing contestant’s precision and skill. Mark Curtis from the International union was on-hand to assist in the proctoring of the theory categories and was our guest of honour at the prize awards ceremony at the end of the day. It was a fantastic day on which there were many moments of which to be proud. The day had a videographer on site so please check out that video here.
