Construction Electrician Foundation grad finds new career after return to school

Burnaby, BC – May 23, 2012 – After spending a few years in the workforce, Travis Nieken decided that he wanted more out of life. His days consisted of going to work at a liquor store and hanging out with his friends, and he soon realized that he needed a change.

Hear Travis discuss the reasons why he decided to go back to school on Vancouver Career College’s YouTube Channel.

“College changed my life because I was on the train to Nowheresville, pretty much,” Travis says. “I wasn’t really doing too much. I didn’t really have anything to motivate me until I went to school. I wanted to make something of myself and have a future 25 years down the road.”

Once Travis decided on a career, he enrolled in the Construction Electrician Foundation program at Vancouver Career College’s Burnaby campus. He appreciated learning from industry-experienced instructors who were prepared and committed to their students. He also liked that hands-on training was a major component of the program.

“Hands-on classes are great,” he says. “You’re able to actually go into the work and practice what you’ll be doing for the rest of your life.”
