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 both employer and institution-based training programs that align with MiHR’s National Occupational Training Standards (NOTS) to reduce duplication and standardize mining industry training efforts. Recognition under the CMTRP would be to showcase both employer and institution-based training programs to provide:
- 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
- Ensuring excellence in training, skills development and the building of a safe workforce
