If you could give advice to someone coming to Sprott Shaw, what would you say?

Learn as much as you can, ask a lot of questions, enjoy your time with instructors as they have a load of knowledge and get your class 4 DL and sign language because you will need both. You will get hired faster if you have these.

Is there anything else you would like to share?

Study hard and watch YouTube videos on health care.
