TMCNet:  Heavy Equipment Safety Training College to Deliver Train-The-Trainer Instructor Certification for Yukon Mining Association

CAMROSE, AB, Mar 8, 2011 (Canada NewsWire via COMTEX) —
Yukon Mine Training Association (YMTA) launches a second year of training partnership with their delivery agent, Northern Safety Network Yukon training Heavy Equipment Safety Trainers to work in the Yukon mining industry.

Located in Whitehorse, YMTA’s objective is to work with mining companies, industry service providers, First Nation governments, Territorial and Federal governments and academic institutions to bring training and jobs together.

According to Executive Director Sheila Sergy, of Northern Safety Network Yukon (NSNY), “We’ve been very pleased with High Velocity Equipment Training’s curriculum and support especially the train-the-trainer component. High Velocity’s Train-The-Trainer program and ongoing support has allowed NSNY to deliver two successful training programs so far. Our focus is to develop capacity in the communities and support livelihood-development in a competitive market. We are committed to developing more training opportunities such as the 12-week heavy equipment program supplied by High Velocity Equipment Training.”

Sergy goes on to say, “High Velocity Equipment Training has not only supplied us with outstanding heavy equipment safety training and easy-to-use heavy equipment curriculum but has also provided a very comprehensive Train-The-Trainer (TTT) Instructor Certification program. This program was a perfect fit for us because not only did we need classroom-theory and hands-on equipment training…. but we also needed training for our instructors to teach the curriculum. We are currently training aboriginal men and women to become heavy equipment instructors and therefore role models in their communities. Our instructors were very impressed last year with the TTT program and we are excited to send our new trainers this year…I will be attending the graduation ceremony in Camrose, AB.”

Based in Camrose, AB. High Velocity Equipment Training offers TTT Instructor Certification to industry training departments, safety training organizations and non-profit associations. “Our TTT program is mobile and can now be taught anywhere says Shayne Bonnough, CEO of High Velocity Equipment Training. We turn good heavy equipment operators into fantastic facilitators so they can share their stories with new graduates and possibly save a life. Our certified trainers must be strong in both the classroom theory and the intensive field exercises, which is a rare combination for this industry.”

Darryl Tamagi, General Manager of High Velocity Equipment Training says “This mobile TTT program allows us to reach out to many remote areas to offer training capacity.” Tamagi adds, “We have high demand from the industry for our graduates. Employers now want both the hard-skills or operational-skills combined with the soft-skills or teamwork-skills. The cost of training a new-hire today combined with all insurance costs and liability of having an uncertified hot-head or poorly trained employee on the job-site…. means that human resource departments in oil, gas and mining are placing high value on a balanced scorecard…..of emotional-skills, safety-skills, operational-skills and life-skills together!”

Sheila Sergy of NSNY says, “This training is unique in how it helps our students look at their personal beliefs in order to make a career-choice, rather than just getting a job to get to the next pay-cheque. Last year our instructors described the TTT program as very intense and our trainers brought that intensity back home to the students we trained here in the Yukon! We are very proud to be working with the support of YMTA and with partners like High Velocity Equipment Training so we can build training capacity and help individuals and our communities prosper.”

The TTT Instructor Certification Program runs from Feb 28th to March 11th in Camrose AB. Invitation to graduation ceremony can be requested.
