"This has absolutely been the most eye opening course Clark has had to offer. I've
had to draw upon skills sets I had no idea were innate within me — everything from
communication to being able to contextualize my thoughts." - Pre-apprentice student, Winter 2017
"I think by touring so many different places and attending various training sessions,
I do feel more confident in my abilities as a worker, student, and individual." - Pre-apprentice student, Winter 2017
"The fact you can make a livable wage and get paid to learn the craft is such an amazing
thing. I have learned I have more potential than I ever thought I could." - Pre-apprentice student, Winter 2017
