Metis Employment & Training Recruitment Success
Goodson Heating & Cooling
Goodson Heating & Cooling is a small independent company owned and operated by Paul Goodson, a second generation gasfitter with over 25 years of experience in the heating and air conditioning industry. In the summer of 2011 we received a phone call from a young man looking for a company with whom he could gain some work experience as part of a program he was involved with through the Manitoba Metis Federation. We recognized how difficult it must have been for him to make the call and admired his resolve so we thought we would give him a chance. It turned out to be a win-win situation for everyone involved, Blair gets work experience and Paul gets a helper.
Blair is single minded in his desire to become a gasfitter and it wasnít long before we had him enrolled in the Manitoba Apprenticeship Program with the goal to achieve his Gasfitter "B" License.
Blair turned out to be a very hard worker and a great asset to our company so at the end of the work experience program, we were happy to hire Blair on as our apprentice. We were able to have him fast-tracked and he was accepted into the Level One Gasfitters Technical Training in November, often it can take years to get an apprentice to this point but Blairís hard work and determination proved that he is up to the challenge.
We are extremely proud of Blairís achievements and look forward to watching him continue to grow.
