Competitor in Skill: Concrete Construction Work
Country: Denmark

How did you get interested in your skill?
Originally I wanted to be a carpenter, but I could not find an apprenticeship. Then the large Danish construction company Per Aarsleff offered me an appreticeship as a concrete construction worker, and I said yes thank you!

Where did you do your training for your skill?
I have trained with my partner, because it is a team competition. We have trained at school, and we think we are well prepared for the challenge of the demonstration skill.

How did you first find out about your Member organization and its programs?
- At the national competition.

Who influenced you to pursue your skill as a career?
My teacher was a great influence.

Did participating in the skills competitions and training for WorldSkills help you progress in your skill? Please describe.
I believe that it will be a great advantage for me to be able to put participation in WorldSkills on my CV.

What do you currently do? Where do you work?
I mostly build bridges. All kinds of bridges from a small pedestrian gangway, railway bridges or big bridges over water. We also build high apartment buildings, so I build everything involving concrete.
Right now I am building the foundations for a huge new building that will house production of electricity and heating by burning chips of wood.

What are your future career aspirations?
When I finish my apprenticeship I want to study to become a windmill technician. I would like to build windmill from scratch till they are ready to make a lot of electricity.
