Alan Song - Industrial Electrician
As a Red Seal Industrial Electrician and a FSR with many years of work experience, few things make Allen feel as happy as the enjoyment that he gets out of sharing his knowledge with others. Originally born in China, Allen’s inquisitive mind lead him to pursue an engineering degree. He quickly advanced in his career and dedicated some time to teach engineering at a local university. In 2000, he moved to Ontario in order to test his skills in a new country. After successfully challenging his Industrial Electrician ticket in 2005, he moved to Vancouver and has since trained numerous apprentices and worked on many complex projects.
Allen is very passionate about his trade, and enjoys the fact that it implements cutting edge technology and allows him to constantly learn new things. He loves to be able to work as a professional while also mentoring young apprentices. When it comes to finding the right apprentice, Allen firmly believes that personality comes first and foremost. If someone is able to work with others effectively while also committing themselves to learning new things, then he is happy to have them on his team. At this time, Allen works with Central City Brewing, a company that recently received a Certificate of Recognition by the Industry Training Authority for their commitment towards hiring new apprentices. He has succeeded as a mentor, entrepreneur, and innovator, and invites anyone with an inquisitive mind to give his trade a try.
