This gave him the opportunity to travel the world. With RCL, his work took him to Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia, the French Polynesian Islands, Hawaii and Alaska. Jordan said, “My time at OIART has given me a substantial head start in the industry – not only from a technical standpoint, but also when interacting with clients on a professional level. The confidence I feel operating as well as my troubleshooting skills I attribute to my time with the OIART instructors.”
