Mr. Daryl Peters, Chief Executive Officer of Defensive Driving School, never thought that his life would change forever once he became certified as a Heavy-Duty Equipment Operator thanks to the Board of Industrial Training.
His remarkable story, however, began a little differently than others, as he discovered the training school and its programmes by chance.
“I was cleaning my house, and I stumbled on this form for the Board of Industrial Training, so I asked who it belonged to, and my brother said it was his. “So, I told him that I wanted to sign up for a course too,” he explained.
However, owing to unforeseen circumstances, he was unable to do so, and his brother instead pursued his desired training programme.
Mr. Peters eventually received training by the agency in 2014. He realized right away that his selection would be advantageous because he had previously worked as a taxi and hire bus driver.
“Having a trade is a plus since I did not leave school with five subjects but three, which did not prevent me from pursuing additional talents or the number of certificates that I now have,” he stated.
With his knowledge and abilities, Mr. Peters has been able to open his own driving school, which not only offers practical driving lessons but also in-class sessions.
As such, he believes that people will see the value of learning a life skill as a backup plan for supporting themselves and their families.
This, he said, can be done through the Board of Industrial Training.
“I now have bragging rights because I have all classes of vehicles on my license, and I am hoping to now give back to the very agency that allowed me to reach these heights,” he continued. And, with some help from the institution, he would be able to train those interested in his area of expertise efficiently.
