Windsor ON: ENWIN Apprentices Chad Hedrick and Denis Rivest know what it is to be among the best in Ontario!

The Powerline Maintainer Apprentices, both graduates of St. Clair College, represented ENWIN this week at the annual Ontario Technological Skills Competition (OTSC).

ENWIN’s team, coached by Distribution Supervisor Ray Forget, was awarded the Silver medal for their outstanding powerline construction and maintenance skills performance. This is the second consecutive year that ENWIN has taken home a medal, having received the Gold medal in 2015.

OTSC is Canada's largest skilled trades competition, with more than 67 contests, 2,000 competitors and 20,000 spectators. This year’s contest was held at RIM Park in Waterloo. Competition proved to be close, with the ENWIN team finishing just two points behind the Gold medal team from Entegrus.

Taking home both a Gold and Silver medal in the past two years of competing, the team has achieved tremendous results.

Most importantly, Chad and Denis eagerly shared their knowledge and expertise with young students from various college programs throughout the duration of the competition.

“We are all inspired by their skill level and their generosity,” commented Coach Forget.
