1st Year Apprentice, Operating Engineers Local #66
Jordan had a background in the trades as his grandmother owns a commercial cleaning company that does a lot of work cleaning and maintaining job sites. Yet, he had a desire to move out on his own in the trades.
“I was accepted into the ‘Intro to the Trades Program’ at the Energy Innovation Center,” said Jordan. The program gave me the opportunity to look at all of the trades, as well as to refresh my math and overall comprehension skills, and that was important in passing the operators entrance exam.”
Jordan said the program also taught him the team-oriented approach needed to be successful and to better understand the level of dedication and desire it takes to be successful. “The EIC program really put me on a path to success, and the training I’m receiving at the Operating Engineers will allow me to succeed in a great career.”
