A new career takes off for CPO Graduate Danny Passi

After 25 years in the Air Force, Danny Passi decided it was time to come back down to earth and build a new career. He considered different options, but kept returning to the civil construction and infrastructure industries - so chose to study for a Certificate in Civil Plant Operation (CPO) at Tai Poutini Polytechnic (TPP)'s Waikato civil construction campus and worksite.

"TPP was truly an amazing experience," says Danny. "lt helped me transition from military to civilian life, and has given me the skills and confidence to look for work in a new area."
