Mike at WorldSkills 2013

This is an article I found pertaining to WorldSkills 2013. It mentions that Mike is a "mentor and cheerleader" for the competitors.

Young tradespeople from across Canada are gearing up for the 2013 WorldSkills competition in Germany, including Grande Prairie's own Mike Sheideman.
The 21 year old is working towards his Refridgeration ticket, but took a couple of days off last week to take part in some WorldSkills training in Ottawa.
He says preparing for the competition has taught him a lot - knowledge he believes will help him in his job here at Albright Refridgeration.
"Some of the training includes problem solving and just focus and teamwork lots of the time, so coming back with some of those skill sets will be pretty good. The WorldSkills builds fundamentals and a lot more, so when you go back to the worksite you can hopefully bring more to the table."
Canada's most trusted contractor, Mike Holmes from "Holmes on Homes" fame is serving as a mentor and cheerleader for the 35 competitors on Team Canada.
The WorldSkills competition is slated for July 2nd to 7th in Leipzig, Germany.
