Car enthusiast Gregory Tobichuk discusses the much anticipated debut of the 2021 Ford Bronco this July.
MANSFIELD, MA / JULY, 2020 / In 2017, Ford announced the company would be releasing a new and improved Bronco. However, production of the much anticipated vehicle was halted due to the coronavirus pandemic, forcing Bronco fans to wait even longer for its reveal. Car enthusiast Gregory Tobichuk recently stated that the Bronco’s release is now set for July 13. Until now, those awaiting the reveal have only seen leaked photos and renderings.
“We’ve been waiting since 2017 to see this new version of the Bronco,” Gregory Tobichuk said. “Ford has been extremely diligent in not revealing too much information about the 2021 edition, and that has made the wait even more difficult.”
Gregory Tobichuk explained that the Bronco is expected to compete with the Jeep Wrangler, which features a similar boxy look, plenty of ground clearance, and the one feature car enthusiasts are anticipating most — a removable roof and doors. Gregory Tobichuk explained that the removable roof was one of the most desired features of the decades-old Ford Bronco, and fans are eager to see how this feature looks and operates on the new and improved 2021 version.
“We’re expecting a vehicle that’s rugged enough to go anywhere, but we also expect to it to have all of the latest and greatest amenities,” Gregory Tobichuk said. “Previous versions were pretty bare bones, but Ford has hinted at the 2021 Bronco being equipped with many of the luxuries of the Raptor.”
Gregory Tobichuk also described some details he knows will be present in the new edition of the Bronco, including a grille featuring the Bronco nameplate and LED running lights. A turbo-charged engine is expected and car enthusiasts, like Gregory Tobichuk, are hoping for the option of a manual transmission, but Ford hasn’t released full details to the public.
Gregory Tobichuk added that he expects the new Bronco to be as rugged as the versions that date all the way back to 1966. The Bronco has always been a vehicle designed for the outdoors with an ability to go practically anywhere, and that’s what Bronco fans really want to see with this 2021 version. While the Bronco will be revealed in just two weeks, it isn’t expected ot hit dealerships until 2021. Ford has stated that the starting price will be around $30,000.
Massachusetts-based plumber Gregory Tobichuk uncovers what it takes to achieve success in the industry.
From community college training to passing examinations on local plumbing codes, licensed plumber Gregory Tobichuk provides an expert look at what it takes to become a successful professional in today’s plumbing market.
According to Gregory Tobichuk, technical schools and vocational programs typically offer among the most comprehensive formal education when it comes to plumbing. “Community colleges, too,” says Mansfield-based Tobichuk, “often also provide some degree of plumbing-focused training and education.”
Within plumbing, however, Gregory Tobichuk says there’s something far more important than simple qualifications: experience. “Accredited classroom education has its place, of course,” suggests the expert, “but by far the most important credential for any plumber is hands-on experience.”
Ranging from two to five years in length, apprenticeship programs are the most common path into plumbing, according to Gregory Tobichuk. “Accredited apprenticeship programs are largely overseen by plumbing industry unions,” he explains.
Alternatively, non-union programs and training courses are sometimes provided by larger plumbing firms, Gregory Tobichuk says, that demand a constant stream of new plumbers to join their ranks following successful completion of their apprenticeships.
“Most apprenticeship programs, and particularly those which are accredited and overseen by industry unions, will also require some degree of classroom education,” he points out, “usually in the form of a set number of hours per year.”
This, Gregory Tobichuk suggests, is to ensure an understanding of drafting, for example, plus safety regulations and basic mathematics, all required in addition to hands-on experience for a plumber to become successfully licensed.
Licensed plumber Gregory Tobichuk is a former U.S. Army telecommunications maintenance operator. During his military career, Tobichuk also served in the military police, and, again later switching roles to infantry, was deployed to Afghanistan from 2010 to 2011. Gregory Tobichuk left the Army in December of 2011.
Outside of his work in plumbing, heating, and construction, Gregory Tobichuk is a lifelong muscle car fan. A particular fan of Camaros and Mustangs, Tobichuk recently provided a personal insight into his passion for high-performance, rear-wheel-drive V8 coupes.
Gregory Tobichuk has also shared his love of hockey. “I’m a huge Boston Bruins fan,” explains Tobichuk. Competing in the National Hockey League and founded in 1924, the Bruins are the third-oldest active team in the NHL, according to the licensed plumber.
Switching his focus back to today’s top plumbing qualifications, Gregory Tobichuk briefly points toward licensing requirements. “Once an individual has completed their apprenticeship and the appropriate classroom education, the final step is to get licensed,” he explains.
“Often varying by jurisdiction, newly qualified plumbers will most commonly be expected to pass a test,” adds Gregory Tobichuk, wrapping up, “on topics including safety measures and local plumbing codes, after which they’ll be good to go.”
Switching careers can be daunting and not everyone is successful in the transition. Gregory Tobichuk made it work and is thriving in his new career.
Whether making a career change by choice or out of circumstantial necessity, finding and succeeding in a job in a new field can be tricky. Some people decide they are ready for the challenge of a new career and decide to take the leap into a new arena. Others find themselves in a position where their current industry or career path is no longer viable, and are therefore pushed to find something new in order to continue to move forward and remain employed. In 2011 Gregory Tobichuk was in the former position, ready to pursue other interests and see what other careers had to offer.
Gregory Tobichuk joined the Army in 2003 and within two years had already made a major transition within the military. He started out working as a Telecommunications Maintenance Officer but in 2005 moved into a career with the military police. Right at the beginning of his career Gregory Tobichuk proved that he could move from one role to another. This particular transition meant he now had more responsibilities and more people relying on him. Taking that kind of career leap early on prepared Gregory Torbichuk for the day he would transition out of the military and into a brand new civilian career.
In 2007 Gregory Tobichuk made another move within the Army when he joined the Infantry. Once again he was taking on a huge responsibility. He proved his ability to learn new skills and perform at a high level amongst new challenges. By making another change early in his career Gregory Tobichuk proved his resilience and flexibility, useful skills in nearly any industry. There was also a lot of crossover in the skills needed to be successful in the military police and the infantry. Choosing a career requiring similar skills helped make the transition smooth for Gregory Tobichuk.
Gregory Tobichuk was deployed to Afghanistan in 2010 and 2011 before leaving the military and making the largest career change of this life. This time it wasn’t just a transition within the Army; it was a complete shift in direction. The discipline, flexibility, and determination Gregory Tobichuk learned during his military career helped him begin a successful career as a plumber. He’s now working as a licensed plumber and credits the smooth transition to the other changes he’d made early on that taught him valuable lessons in how to take skills from one job and channel them into a new enterprise. He brings a wide variety of skills and experiences learned over the years into his current career as a plumber.
After eight years of serving his nation on the front lines, Gregory Tobichuk reenters civilian life with a renewed focus and a new career.
Gregory Tobichuk wasnot always a plumber, but after serving in the Army from 2003 to 2011, he is now ready to apply all the life lessons learned on the front lines and overseas to a business that serves his local community of Mansfield, MA. As many Americans know, the transition from service back into civilian life is not always easy, and like many other veterans, it has taken Gregory Tobichuk a while to find a future that can support his family and give back to his community.
