The Canadian Mining Training Recognition Program

The CMTRP assesses a training programs’ learning outcomes and objectives to recognize alignment with industry needs and contribution to an individuals’ competency. 

There is often a disconnect between the needs of mining employers and the skills taught by educational and training institutes. This disconnect results in duplication of training efforts that affects the qualified mobile worker and entry-level workers who have graduated from mining programs.


The goal of the Canadian Mining Training Recognition Program (CMTRP) is to recognize mine training programs delivered by employers, educational institutions and training organizations that align to MiHR’s National Occupational Training Standards (NOTS). Recognition under the CMTRP would showcase a training program’s:

  • Demonstration of commitment and consistency in the delivery of training in the mining industry at a national level
  • Validation that a training program’s learning outcomes meet the NOTS
  • Excellence in training, skills development and the building of a safe workforce
