A seven-year employee at the university, Pamela Monette said the program was critical for her future.
“You have to be a ‘June of All Trades or a Jack of All Trades’ to work here,” she said. “You do what you have to do to make the university function. This will help in everything that I do.”
Monette, who works at the President’s House, praised the university’s efforts to “go green” in cleaning.
“We’re looking at a lot of different things to help the environment,” she said. “I like that.”
The university has 120 employees taking classes to become registered apprentices.
