I had a great experience in the apprentice program. I started at the beginning of my Crossland career as an apprentice and worked my way to become a mentor. As a mentor, I have the opportunity to share my knowledge I gained through the apprenticeship program with future carpenters. Learning in the field greatly benefits the program.
