Vernon Natomagan is a student in the Dumont Technical Institute’s Adult Basic Education (Level 4) program in Pinehouse Lake, Saskatchewan.

Gabriel Dumont Institute has been around for a while and has helped a lot of people. It has offered courses and upgrading in Pinehouse over the years. Because of the presence of Gabriel Dumont Institute in this community, many people have had the opportunity to go back to school as adults and earn their high school diploma. Several other people from Pinehouse have completed GDI training programs including carpentry, plumbing, and pipefitting, or even in nursing.

Through Gabriel Dumont Institute, I am now upgrading my high school education which I did not finish years ago. I regret dropping out of high school when I had the chance. I just did not push myself enough to where I am at today. Then one day I realized how much I needed a good education, so I got back up and kept trying. When I heard about Adult Basic Education I was interested. I thought I would give it another go, but this time for good.

Many of us do not realize that education is important and that it may open many doors. I recommend this program to people that need to upgrade their education. It has helped me out and it will help anybody that wants it. I am now in Adult Basic Education (Level 4) and looking forward in graduating.

Thank you, Vernon, for choosing GDI. As you complete your Level 4, know that we are here for you and will be happy to discuss your options after graduating.
