Course Facilitator: Henry Janzen
Henry brings 40 plus years of construction and operations management to his role as the Construction Technologies Training Facilitator. As a general contractor, Henry has had the opportunity to perform all of the activities that are part of the curriculum as well as to lead and teach others who have worked with him. He has worked with many clients to create updated living spaces that meet their needs.
Henry’s biggest thrill is to see a student respond as they understand new information and practices and how they can then apply that new information to their situation. Being a part of the process that gets people back to work is also very gratifying as we ‘unleash the potential of people to build new futures’.
