Bridgette and Jan are just two of the dozens of apprentices (& one dedicated administrator!) who passed their respirator education and fit testing before heading off to do marine service training projects.

Special thanks to Peter Asfour & Doug Clements from 3M for their assistance.

How to be a Journeyperson MST at age 20

Austin Edwards told students and parents at the Saanich School’s “Parents as Informed Partners” night how he completed his 4-year Marine Service Technician Ticket before his 21st birthday. By starting his trades training at Quadrant while he was in Grade 11 at Parkland Secondary, he got credit towards high school and MST technical training at the same time. Quadrant is just one of the training partners with Saanich Schools where Dual Credit students like Austin can fast track their career goals.

Austin completed his advanced competencies and final exam this past spring. He works at Raven Marine in Sidney and specializes in mechanical systems installations.

Congratulations Austin!
