Students Show Off Operator Skills At Lafarge Cannon Pit

High school students from the Abbotsford school district are provided the opportunity to demonstrate their heavy equipment operating skills at a recent open house at the Lafarge Cannon Pit in Mission BC.

The students are part of the Abbotsford School District’s Heavy Equipment Operator (HEO) ACE IT Apprenticeship Training Program.

“We know there are a lot of opportunities for heavy equipment operators,” said Patricia Tebbutt, district principal for career programs with the school district.

The program is in its fourth year and is the first of its kind in the country.
