Hello, my name is Matt Aninos (a Knee-nose).
I am a 28-year Navy Seabee Veteran (Seabees are basically a construction company for the Navy, that is also trained in armed combat).
I started young, helping my Father turn a hay loft into our home. After high school I helped build concrete basements. One a day, six days a week.
I joined the Navy to become a mechanic, where I learned mechanical theory, operation, troubleshooting skills and attention to detail.
Along the way I was hand-picked to go through lot of training.
Some of the schools I was able to attend that pertain to the construction field are:
- Trane Air conditioning: Theory and troubleshooting,
- AVO Electrical: Electrical theory, Power distribution,
- Hazardous Materials Technician,
- Safety Inspector,
- Contract Officer representative (for construction projects),
- Quality Assurance/Control,
- BOMI Facilities Planning and Project Management.
