“Just wanted to say thank you to Randall Benson for the 5 day PV training and installation course. I am a Red Seal Journeyman Electrician. I decided to attend this course in August of 2016 in Edmonton Alberta after being laid off due to the decrease in construction in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Since attending, and receiving a wealth of knowledge and motivation from Randall I have continued to pursue the dream of becoming an entrepreneur and starting my own company. After attending his course I then applied to Praxis, a entrepreneurial training course in Saskatoon, funded by Cansask. Randalls passion for the industry and determination helped fuel my own fire to follow the same path promoting renewable energy. I believe none of what I have accomplished thus far would have been possible without people like Randall. Thank you again, I am very grateful and excited for the journey that lies ahead.
Sincerely, Stephen Stuart”
