We asked some of our post-degree graduates about their experience as a WCS student and working in their field.
The program involves a lot of presentations and in-class discussion. This will ultimately prepare you for the field since presentations can be a large part of your role.
Our instructor, Dan, took us for a walk around the building our class was in and had us looking at from top to bottom. I haven't looked at any room the same since. My eyes somewhat automatically scope out rooms/buildings/situations/people for hazards or hazardous situations.
I'm constantly learning. Things are always changing in the field so there is always more to learn.
