Yes! Some people worry they’re not strong enough for trades work, particularly women since the trades has traditionally been a male-dominated industry. But the truth is, most trainees – regardless of gender – build up their strength and fitness on the job, and the really heavy lifting is usually done by machines. Besides, there’s much more to being a great tradesperson than how much you can lift. Employers are looking for team players with good communication and problem solving skills, along with initiative and great attention to detail.
