|This is Mandy, her husband and their
This is Mandy. Like so many others, she had immersed herself in studies thinking what she originally chose was the greatest thing on the planet. Well she had her discovery too.
Mandy had done 4 years of college and
associative arts in Bible studies. As time went on she developed an
in environmental issues and so set her eye on a 2 year Chemical
diploma program. As part of her training she took summer jobs with what
is now her current employer. During the time she was working as a
student she gained an interest and appreciation of what it might be
to be a P.E.T./Stationary Engineer and be a plant Operator. After
her diploma and hearing more about P.E.T.s/Stationary Engineers she
for one of the positions advertised in the paper. The only drawback
she didnít have a P.E.T./Stationary Engineering diploma. She would have
to get her P.E.T./Stationary Engineering diploma as a condition of
employment and to get her pay raises which are pretty much automatic
you have passed all the learning criteria.
Then guess what she did? Yup. You guessed it. She studied for her Fourth class P.E.T./Stationary Engineering certificate and got it. Now sheís got a full time job with an excellent employer and sheís on her way to the good life. She is lucky, just like the rest of us who were fortunate enough to hear about and get on board with P.E.T./Stationary Engineering.
She likes the opportunity for study time at work to further her career as well as the diversity of jobs within her trade, that she can take on. The money is great and the time off allows her opportunities with family and friends that wouldnít otherwise be possible.
Her biggest disappointment is much like mine. Even though Mandy has only been in the business a short time as of the composition of this bio, (she started in late 2000) she wishes she had known about this allot earlier in the game.
Mandy is like most of us in that,
to have to study for more exams to get more diplomas?" The part that
it an easy "Yes" for Mandy was how much further ahead she would be as a
P.E.T./Stationary Engineer This made it an easier pill to swallow. All
the benefits plus (Which she will tell you about later on in her bio.)
getting paid to study at work and then get paid double time to write an
exam if it was on your days off is appealing to most of us. Most people
are floored or simply just donít believe itís true when they hear a
like that. But itís true!!
Mandyís attraction to the business:
The shift work can interfere with social and community life. This is a double edged sword as it can also facilitate the same. If it wasnít for the shift work Mandy would be limited with the time she spends with her husband.
