Testimonials

  • Carlos Watson

    The Apprenticeship Programme has been a good experience. I learned a lot at Structural Systems during the on-the-job training. Within three years, I began as an Apprentice Welder and have become an Operator, by gaining experience in welding, fabrication, and by receiving Autocad training. I enjoyed the theoretical training at the Samuel Jackman Prescod Polytechnic. The teachers were helpful and kind, especially Mr. Ian Harvey.
