|This is Gord. He is a foreman/superintendent who
out as, and still is a, P.E.T./Stationary Engineer. He kind-of stumbled
into P.E.T./Stationary Engineering too. He had been attending
and going for a degree in Engineering. Thing was, he got board with
and wanted to get out and do something that excited him. He needed a
and a challenge that would excite him. He sent out hundreds of resumes
with no success. Then it was suggested he attend a 6 week
Engineering session at a local technical school as an adventure and see
if it appealed to him.
Gord came out of the 6 week Power Engineer Technologist/Stationary Engineering course still not having a real clear idea of what P.E.T./Stationary Engineering was all about. He approached an employer he had sent out a resume to previously and actually got an interview. During the interview he expressed the fact that all he wanted was a JOB. Well he got the JOB and soon found out how the JOB could manifest itself into a GREAT CAREER.
Gord was very impressed with the
and satisfaction he found working as a P.E.T./Stationary Engineering so
much so that he graduated through the ranks to foreman status by the
he was 28. He did most of his studying on shift and had all his
paid for by his employer too. He took it all the way to getting his
Class P.E.T./Staionary Engineer's certificate.
"Itís a matter of personal interest and intellectual challenge." Gord says. Gord likeís things to be 100% as anything worth doing, is worth doing well. Heís been in the business since 1984.
