What is something you learned (knowledge, training, skills) during 鶹ýPorn’s Workforce training program that you utilize in your workplace and/or current training?

I am often on private properties with cattle that approach me when I am water sampling. The low-stress handling techniques to move the livestock away from fences where I enter and exit have been really helpful.

Did trainers/instructors/staff at 鶹ýPorn contribute to your career success? How did they help you?

Yes, they were very helpful with questions/concerns, and very encouraging.

What advice would you give to current Workforce students at 鶹ýPorn who are looking to follow a similar path to a job?

Have patience. It all takes time with anything you want to succeed and to learn what you really want to make a career of. If you enjoy your work, it won’t feel like work!
