Camosun expresses its sorrow and stands alongside the Tk’emlúps te Secwepemc

Camosun College is horrified by the news that the remains of 215 children have been found in the grounds of the former Kamloops Residential School, which sat on the traditional territory of the Tk’emlúps te Secwepemc. Our hearts go out to the families and communities who were and are directly affected by this news and by the original loss of their children. We are all affected. This affirms Camosun’s commitment to redressing the impact of our shared history. In memory of these children, Camosun flags on both campuses will be lowered.

Kyle began his Trades career when he successfully completed the Red Seal apprenticeship program in Automotive Mechanical Repair at Camosun College in 1992. Shortly thereafter he was hired by a local GM dealership where he gained experience in working on all aspects of automotive service and repair.

In 2005, he was promoted to service manager where he gained experience in customer service and relations, warranty administration, staffing, and departmental budget management. Having attended dozens of technical training courses throughout his career, Kyle developed a keen desire to pursue a career in Trades training. In 2007, that desire became a reality as he was hired on as a full time instructor at Camosun College.

Before the end of 2009, he had earned his BC Provincial Instructor’s Diploma, as well as taken on the role of Program Leader in the Automotive Training department. In 2014, having served in the role of Program leader for many years, as well as teaching all levels of the Automotive training program, Kyle took on a new challenge by obtaining the position of Chair of Motor Vehicle and Metal Trades. This involved becoming familiar with and coordinating four additional Trades training programs including Heavy Mechanical, Sheet Metal, Metal Fabrication, and Welding.

In addition to his regular duties as Chair, Kyle was also heavily involved in the planning, construction, and moving in phases of the new Center for Trades Education and Innovation building, which in February of 2016, became the new home of the Motor Vehicle and Metal Trades.

Kyle feels both privileged and honoured to be part of this new era of trades training at Camosun, and is looking forward to continuing to grow and learn in his career at Camosun.

In his free time Kyle enjoys cycling, fishing, music, camping, and socializing with close family and friends.
