The best thing about the tourism program is that it's all up to you; you choose the breakdown of the hours you need between volunteering and work experience.
By going to Prince Albert National park I was able to get out of the city and experience learning about wildlife and species I didn't know about.
Now that I've got an apprenticeship passport I get 300 hours credited towards journeyperson papers and free tuition for my first course. I looked up underwater welding and learned about the dangers, safety precautions and steps you have to take, what you would earn, and where you would work around the world.
I like Wildlife Management because you're outdoors. It's more hands on; it beats being in a classroom.
I like being outside better. Not everybody gets
to go up north to Waskesiu!
A job shadow is a pretty good experience.
You know what to expect if you go into that career.
