Why I Became A Technology Professional

  • Back in 1983, I was in transition between being a carpenter and a contractor. I realized at that time I needed more training in reading the building code, bookkeeping and estimating. I picked up BCIT’s calender of different technologies and Building Technology seemed to be a perfect fit for my ongoing education.
