“In addition, the interns participated in a series of dynamic training courses offered through Aecon University. They were assigned a mentor who helped them create an individual development plan to ensure that they maximised the opportunity this programme will afford.

“The objectives of the internship programme were:

“The Bermuda Internship Program Team consisted of Executive Program Sponsor Frank Ross; SVP of Human Resources and Program Director Gordana Terkalas; Human Resources Business Partner and Program Lead Val Deline; Immigration and Mobility Manager, Lisa Reich.

“The redevelopment of L.F. Wade International Airport, which was recently recognised with the IJ Global Magazine Award for the ‘2017 North America Airport Deal of the Year’, is expected to be completed in 2020.”

Aecon’s Executive Advisor Frank Ross said, “Jamar and Zeeko have spent the last six months working with top companies in Canada and shadowing the best in the industry.

“I have no doubt they will take the skills they have learned here and apply them to their everyday work in the Ministry of Public Works. We wish them all the best in their future endeavours.”

Minister of Public Works Lt/Col David Burch also said, “The Ministry of Public Works is committed to the education and training of our young people and this internship programme is a great example of that commitment.

“Jamar and Zeeko will come back to Bermuda more knowledgeable and skilled in their respective fields. This wouldn’t have been possible without Aecon, H.H. Angus & Associates Ltd. and Mulvey & Banani International Inc. and on behalf of the Government, thank you.”

Jamar Dill said, “The Bermuda Airport Internship Programme was a complete success. Over the past six months, I have gained invaluable work experience through complex project exposure at Mulvey & Banani International and while attending informative training events at Aecon headquarters.

    But wasn’t the airport a bad idea?

    • What says:

      Yes it was! 30 years of income gone up in smoke for an airport that is far too large and complex for what Bermuda needs! Just look at Hawaii and what they have!

    But, the old airport doesn’t meet international security requirements. You have until 2021 to comply. You could be banned from travelling to the US…how will you shop in Atlanta if that happens?
