In this episode, we examine what it is like to work hands-on in the field—where the largest trucks in the world are used for daily operations—troubleshooting and fixing broken equipment. Learn about a day as a heavy equipment technician apprentice in Canada’s oil sands with Beckey Unrau.
Beckey thinks life is too short to be unhappy. When she needed a change from her cubicle life, she applied to an apprenticeship program, packed a duffle bag and headed to Fort McMurray. Now she’s maintaining and fixing some of the largest trucks in the world. She sees the results of her work and, despite the longer hours, she goes home feeling happy.
Watch highlights from Beckey’s interview.
