We are not alone and someone in this new place is always helping us

“I am really happy to have the opportunity to be involved in the BIM program at the Bredin Center for Learning. Before joining I had so much conflicting advice regarding job opportunities in Canada. However, after joining BIM program, I have learnt many tools to approach the local job market appropriately. Employment readiness, workplace culture, technical English, AutoCAD, Building Science and Revit Architecture all prepare the students to achieve our employment goal. I am really happy to see the dedicated teachers and staff at Bredin. They provide us the mental strength that we are not alone and someone in this new place is always helping us. I am excited because I have already started to get interview calls, a true reflection of the outcome of my learning in Building Information Modeling Program at Bredin, Calgary.”
