LEEVON formerly worked at Atlantic LNG export terminal, located in south-western, Trinidad and Tobago, very near to where he had grown-up. Unfortunately, due to a severe curtailment in the feed stock supply of natural gas to the 15 million tonnes per annum (mtpa) LNG plant, he was made redundant.
Nevertheless, Leevon persevered and came across the SRDC on their LinkedIn social media platform. He decided to make a telephone call and this was soon followed by an interview process. A paid internship period was suggested and he gladly agreed.
Today, Leevon is using his NEBOSH training to improve the Occupational Safety and Health systems at Maritime Preservation Limited, a leading shipyard located at the port of Port of Spain. Having learnt high level safety requirements for the LNG sector at his former job site, he recognises that the same level of safety is also demanded in the Shipbuilding & Repair industry.
He is happy to utilize his many years of industrial experience to help diversify Trinidad and Tobago's energy-based economy, while getting paid. Leevon also looks forward to applying his current work experience to the SRDC's Shipyard Port project, presently being established at La Brea, south-western Trinidad and Tobago, with EPC contractor China Harbour Engineering Company (CHEC).

DANIEL was patiently awaiting his final examination results from The University of the West Indies at St. Augustine where he had studied for his BSc. Mechanical Engineering degree. He heard of the SRDC through a friend and decided to send his Resume for our consideration.
An interview was scheduled where his school certificates and recommendations was carefully reviewed and several detailed questions were asked and discussed. It was the July/August summer holiday period and the SRDC recommended that he undergo an internship period at one of our S&R stakeholder shipyards.
After a brief 4-week period, his dedication and ability to carefully use his hands and not being afraid of "grease," was quickly recognized by both his supervisor and the shipyard owner. Today, Daniel is still very passionate about his first job and says "Each day is different from the next and I learn many new things, related to my love of engineering."
