I have a wide variety of talents some of which are not directly related but add to the sum of experiences. Directly I have a Gas Technician 1 Certificate, Oil Burner Technician 2, and Stationary Engineer 4th Class, with extensive background in using oil, nat. gas and propane as a fuel source to provide heat.
I have also operated many businesses in the transportation and aviation sector but primarily focused on the HVAC industry. I hold patent right in Canada and the U.S, and have ran for public office on the municipal level. As an instructor I enjoy passing on my talents and experience to those who are inspiring to become Gas Technicians.
