Highlights of our 2022 Spring Technical School – Another Winner

The first of our three 2022 national technical schools was a hit from start to finish.  We offered a full curriculum of nine courses led once again by our expert instructors.  While attendance is not yet back to pre-covid days, we continue to attract more students at each school.  With two more national schools planned this year (Kelowna – September 26-29 and Ottawa – November 28-December 2) and four regional schools, we expect to provide education to well over 100 students in 2022.  Quite a feat as the industry transitions back to better times.

A special congratulations to Phil Dimopoulos from Allmar Regina – DHI Canada’s first technical school scholarship winner.  Phil received complimentary registration for COR133 and successfully passed this course.

The DHT exam results were outstanding.  Four more Canadian members can now proudly wear the designations they have earned.
