“There is an ever-increasing demand for skilled workers specializing in Heavy Equipment Operations. With over $5.3 billion and 859 capital road infrastructure projects currently underway, this is the time to start your training” – Abbotsford School District career program posting
As part of the Abbotsford School District Heavy Equipment Operator course, they spent some time touring a couple of the Lafarge Plants in the Fraser Valley. Tim Higginson, Plant Manager at the Abbotsford Ready Mix Plant hosted thirteen energetic grade 12 students from Yale Secondary School, showcasing the shop facilities and specifically the maintenance department.
Special thanks to Derrick Kemp who explained to the students what is entailed in servicing and maintaining the fleet of Ready Mix trucks. After spending the morning with our knowledgeable Lafarge staff at the Abbotsford Ready Mix Plant, these grade 12 students are one step closer to embarking on their career as a Heavy Equipment Operator.
