"It is Barry Schaffner the guy who completed the JETS program. I retired in my mid fifties but I find myself employed with Charm Diamond Center in New Minas NS. Its great because I get the much needed hands on experience in the store with the possibility of some Head Office experience in the future. 

With Fall fast approaching it is time for me to look at future studies, I'm thinking CJRP. I will in the near future submit the fee for the above course, just a quick update on what education can bring."
