Iain began his welding career by attending a Level C welding course in 1997. He has worked in Gas Turbine engine component and aircraft repair welding, tool and die repair welding, movie prop fabrication, stainless fabrication for the Okanagan wine industry and, after a move to Fort St. John, the oil and gas industry in north-eastern B.C. He is currently the welding instructor at the Fort St. John branch campus. In his spare time he enjoys fishing, gardening, travelling, camping with his family and, yes, even welding.

“I got into welding for the money but I’ve stayed in it for the challenges and the sense of personal satisfaction that overcoming these challenges provides.”

“If there is one piece of advice I can offer a new tradesperson it is that I can’t stress enough the importance of hard work. You get as much out of your training as the effort you put in. As long as you provide the work ethic we’ll provide the training and with that combination the sky’s the limit as to what you can achieve.”
