Electrical Experience

kd electric cranbrook, bc - 2018

I began my apprenticeship at Greystone but only worked a couple days because of my father’s stroke and having to move back to British Columbia to help care for him

I worked on a few different projects at KD including two lighting upgrades; one for Finning and the other on the Reservation, a primary electrical upgrade at the College of the Rockies complete with Capacitor Banks and Surge Protectors and the civil project at DYCAR for the future Cannabis grow operation here in town where I was involved with the layout and underground installation of rigid P.V.C. and building conduit racks for overhead service feeds.

Greystone Electric Ltd Edmonton/Whitecourt, AB - 2016

I began my apprenticeship at Greystone but only worked a couple days because of my father’s stroke and having to move back to British Columbia to help care for him.

Further Employment History

After fulfilling a four year contract with the Canadian Forces, training and serving with a top secret security clearance as an Imaging Technician tasked with providing national defense intelligence by means of image capture and processing, the remainder of the past twenty five years for me has been spent in industrial, commercial & residential, maintenance, construction, fabrication and installation.

I have been a Journeyman Red Seal & Canadian Welding Bureau Certified Welder since 2008, an Apprentice Ironworker since 2015 and most recently I completed my first year electrical training and am looking to continue to grow. I have also worked as a project manager in training for a small Calgary based renovation company start-up, New Beginnings Contracting, where I ran a small labour crew tasked with pulling the homes back onto their foundations at Glen Eagles Estates in Cochrane, Alberta.

For the first number of years in my welding career I worked mainly in a shop environment fabricating components such as stairs, ladders, catwalks, vessels, buildings and skid packages etc. with occasional visits to site for installs however the lion’s share of my time has been spent travelling to site for work and providing mostly on-site services, often dealing closely with the client or prime contractor.

Between Tri-Service Oilfield Mfg. in Edmonton, Alberta which was where I began my welding career and Pacer Piling Corporation (now called Mastec Co.) where I was asked to create a written company standard operating procedure for stacking and splicing piles, I have grown immeasurably. I am now able to teach and train the next generation of apprentice tradesman and guide and instruct them in safe and efficient work practices. I have also discovered that one of my strongest attributes is effective communication. I have observed that many of the unforeseen issues both in the workplace and in dealing with people in general can be traced back to a breakdown in effective communication which naturally has often led to me being tasked with relaying instruction and direction to my fellow teammates.

I understand that living in the Kootenays and working in our industry requires a significant amount of travel and would like you to know that I am quite used to rotational shift work, having worked two years solid of 12 hour nights for City Wide Towing and Recovery in Calgary, Alberta in 2011 & 2012 and have been working rotations up to 24 days away in the bush or up north for the past four years. The truth is I simply love what I do and learning and teaching are key pieces for me so I am hopeful that with you I will be able to continue to grow and am looking forward to showcasing my solid work ethic and knowledge base.

Additional Construction & Maintenance Work

I have worked all over the north in western Canada (overseas in Malawi and Kenya also) and done so in some of the harshest weather and environmental conditions on some of todays’ largest, most ambitious and safety-sensitive projects ever undertaken. A few noteworthy projects include:

In 2014 at the Suncor Fort Hills Secondary Extraction project in Northern Alberta where we were installing structural steel piles for both the project lease as well as the work camp. Temperatures stayed below -55 Celsius for more than a week causing the steal to become excessively brittle and repeatedly snap during installation. Despite the bone-chilling temperatures, malfunctioning equipment and extended wait times for survey work, our crew was able to stay ahead of schedule and significantly out-produce the other contractors’ crew.

Then in 2016 just off of Churchill River in Northern Manitoba, I spent another balmy winter stacking and splicing structural steel piles at Manitoba Hydro’s Bi-pole III, Converter Station for Pacer Piling. I managed to remain incident free and in good health despite a major safety violation caused by an inattentive worker in the form of unsafe rigging and hoisting practices whereby the worker proceeded to disconnect a six thousand pound section of pipe in the vertical plane from the crane before it was securely welded in place, narrowly avoiding certain calamity and a potential loss of life. This prompted me to initiate and participate in a safety investigation, start to finish, during which I was asked to develop a standard operating procedure for hanging and splicing structural steel piles in order that future incidents might be prevented.

And at Canadian Natural Resources Limited site, Horizon, in Northern Alberta, during the 2016 shutdown we were working inside a confined space with very limited mobility and access and many of my colleges were struggling to complete their tasks with the given criteria so my General Foreman asked me to give procedural demonstrations to other workers in order to ensure soundness and uniformity of weld deposits since there had already been a number of quality control issues. I was subsequently asked to put in significant overtime to replace some other workers who were unable to perform the welds to the standard.
