Apprentice Appreciation: Pair of Man. collision apprentices honoured at achievement awards Thursday

Winnipeg, Manitoba — Carrying on a proud tradition of honouring the province’s tradespeople, the Manitoba government recognized its best and brightest on Thursday at the thirty-first annual Apprenticeship Highest Achievement Awards ceremony.

Automotive painter Jacob Doerksen and body technician Trevor Marshall represented the collision repair industry among 36 other newly certified apprentices, declared to be the highest-achieving graduates in their respective trades, as determined by on-the-job performance and academic accomplishments.

“It was a privilege to honour the exemplary achievements of new journeypersons and recognize the ongoing dedication of the employers who supported their learning. Their vital role in meeting skilled labour market demand contributes to the success of Manitoba’s economic growth,” said Manitoba’s Advanced Education and Training Minister Sarah Guillemard.

“Without the commitment of apprentices and employers, we would not have the energetic and prospering apprenticeship system that we have today.”

Additional awards were given out to apprentices who scored highly on their certification exams, this year recognizing Gerred Gooch, a concrete finisher, and Lucas Ridley, a partsperson, for their hard work.

As well, Duke Xie, a construction electrician, received the Internationally Experienced Tradesperson Award.
