The Outstanding Apprentice consistently demonstrates the five A's of apprenticeship: Attitude, Aptitude, Attendance, Ask questions, & Advocate. Eric started working with Acadian Construction as a labourer, where he was curious, hard-working, dedicated to high safety standards, and motivated to pursue status as a Journeyman Carpenter. The team at Acadian Construction sees a bright future for Eric in a leadership role, as well as a workplace mentor to his own apprentices.
The Master Mentor embodies the qualities of effective workplace mentors everyday, and goes above and beyond in their dedication to apprentice development. Tim was nominated by his peers for his openness, his tendency to encourage and solicit feedback, and his general willingness to share his experiences with apprentices and other mentors. He exemplifies how an individual can start out as an apprentice and, through hard work, education, and dedication become a leader.
