She stumbled upon CTCL, an Autodesk Training Centre in Chaguanas, and after just one class, Traci was convinced that she wanted to teach AutoCAD. After completing the three levels, and many months of daily phone calls to the school about teaching opportunities, Traci was hired as an assistant lecturer in 2012, and then later as a full time one.
Traci longed to do more. Though happy with her job, she wanted to offer more robust programs to the general public. In 2015, she accepted the position of draughtsperson and ATC Manager at Advanced Intelligent Modelling Solutions (AIMS Ltd), where she educated hundreds of students in South Trinidad in the use of AutoCAD, Revit Architecture and Fusion 360.
Yet again unsatisfied, Traci concluded that with her own Training Centre, she would be well positioned to offer the best technical education to her students. Thus, after many years of patience and planning, RECAAD Labs was born in 2021.
