Georgian was on hand at the Ontario Technological Skills Competition (OTSC) in Waterloo this week.

With 67 skilled trades and technologies contests and 2,000 competitors from high schools and colleges across Ontario, the OTSC is the largest skilled trades competition in Canada. Approximately 20,000 high school students were in attendance. It was the perfect opportunity to showcase Georgian’s programs and the opportunities available here.

Rob Davidson, co-ordinator of the Marine and Small Engine programs, David Minielly, program technologist for the Engineering Technology and Environmental Studies department, and Dustin Aucoin, recruiter for Engineering Technology, represented Georgian at an interactive booth complete with a personal watercraft simulator. Judging by the line-ups, the Georgian booth proved to be quite popular with prospective students.
