I recently attended a training class through UTA taught by Darrel Canada. After attending this class I felt like I had learned quite a bit and It renewed my focus on safety in the workplace. One thing I noticed at the beginning of the class was there were students that have traveled from far off states to attend the class. Their reasoning when I ask why they traveled so far was because classes with Darrel are so much different. The longer the class went on the more comfortable I became with industry standards and hazard recognition. We not only went through power points and videos but we reviewed past incident cases. We used the OSHA standards book to figure out what the companies were cited for and why. I immediately knew that I was going to sign up for another class. One more class turned into two and then I found myself researching to find the classes that Darrel was teaching through UTA. I drove from NW Oklahoma to Midland Texas and stayed in a Motel for four nights just to attend an OSHA G200 course through UTA simply because he was teaching the class. In total I have attended 5 classes through UTA over the last 5 months and all of them were with Darrel. After speaking to the other students I know that I am not the only one who feels this way about the classes that Darrel teaches. I started with one class and Darrel convinced me over time that I should shoot for my CSHO cert through UTA. I vowed to achieve this goal and also vowed that I was going to do it all with Darrel's classes. I was informed this morning that Darrel more than likely will no longer be instructing for UTA. Darrel is a very valuable asset to everyone in this district and we need to keep him local. I am asking for help from anyone who has benefited from Darrel's classes and experiences that he has shared with you during a training session, to speak up and sign this petition to keep Darrel teaching through UTA.
