HEO Student, Taylor McLennan

Taylor McLennan, Heavy Equipment Operator

Taking the HEO training was really rewarding for me. I liked the fact that everything about the course was hands-on. I've always learned better when I get to do something for myself. The instructors were excellent and always right there to give you tips and pointers to help you out. I gained a great deal of confidence in not only myself, but my ability to do whatever I set my mind to.
