What Veterans are Saying about UBC MVP Training

"The MVP program was great! It gave me a one year credit towards my apprenticeship and a pay raise. They started me off at $19/hour but once they saw all the training I received from the MVP program, I was bumped up to almost $40/hour. I work at least 40 hours every week sometimes 50-60. This career path has allowed me to live comfortably without having to worry about bills or other expenses. I am grateful for the opportunity that the MVP program has afforded me."

"First and foremost I’d like to tell you that after two years of working as a union millwright after graduating the UBC MVP program – It has changed our lives in a lot of great ways. Second, I am forever grateful not only for the opportunities you folks and this free program provide but also the career path that it has given me and my family."

"Above all, my Family is the most important thing dear to me. Transitioning from the military is scary and having this program and this career is huge. I have been working as a team in the military and being a part of this millwright team is part of my extended family just like the military – I am proud to be part of. It helps me provide for my family more than I imagined. My grandfather was a millwright, I never understood why he was so tired all the time but was a proud distinguished man, now I understand him. Thanks to the UBC MVP training and apprenticeship, I can follow in his footsteps and have a great career. I will be forever grateful."
