3rd Year Apprentice, KML Regional Council of Carpenters
Curtis had some 14 years of experience in the building materials business, including being the owner of a small construction firm. As his family grew, and the demands of balancing work and family became greater, he decided it was time to follow the advice of many Union Trade Carpenters he had met over the years.
“Joining the apprentice program allowed me to gain more skill and expertise while continuing to do what I truly have a passion for, carpentry,” said Curtis. “What’s most inspiring to me about the training is how the journeymen invest their time in the apprentices and instill in us the skill, discipline and responsibility that allows us to build successful careers.” Curtis, too, has that commitment, reaching out to kids in his community, and helping them realize the opportunities available in the construction trades.
