Completion of the Boilermakers National Apprenticeship, which is a four year 6,000 hour accredited training program. I provided key services in the repair of large and small boilers in the power plant industry. I was involved in many critical lifts where my rigging training came into use.

My foreman training and skills where put into play right after my apprentice training was complete. My crew of men was responsible for several 50 ton lifts which was completed before schedule.
