Construction/Industrial Electrician Graduate Featured On NL Hydro’s “Get To Know” Segment
Academy Canada’s Construction/Industrial Electrician graduate and Apprentice Electrician at NL Hydro’s Bay d’Espoir location, Amber Hickman, is featured on NL Hydro website’s “Get To Know” segment.
According to Amber, her father inspired her to follow his footsteps to pursue a career as an Electrician.
As an Apprentice Electrician at the Bay d’Espoir Hydroelectric Generation Station, Amber is responsible for keeping the lights on, ensure things run smoothly, conduct preventive maintenance, and investigate and trouble shoot any issues that arise to keep electricity going as soon as possible.
Since the Bay d’Espoir Hydroelectric Generation Station supplies a majority of the Island of Newfoundland’s electricity, Amber’s role as an Electrician at this power plant is critical to keeping the lights on and the province’s economy going.
For Amber, being a female in a male dominated trade inspires other girls and women to take up skilled trades as a career choice along with the many opportunities it has to offer.
