TransCanada supported development of a mobile trades training unit for Northwest Community College in Terrace, B.C. The semi-trailer, outfitted for teaching several in-demand skills, will travel to northern B.C. communities to assist in teaching students welding, electrical and other trades.
Northwest Community College (NWCC) unveiled a new mobile training unit on July 16 that will help students in northwestern communities develop skills for in-demand trades jobs, thanks in part to funding from B.C.’s Skills for Jobs Blueprint.
Minister of Advanced Education Andrew Wilkinson announced $598,500 in provincial funding today toward the cost of the mobile training unit and equipment. In addition, LNG Canada is contributing $200,000 and TransCanada is contributing $75,000 toward the unit, and the Industry Training Authority (ITA) is providing support through project development.
