Starting in January 2020, Cambrian College in Sudbury will be offering mine hoist training courses through its corporate training department.
The courses focus on different aspects of mine hoist operation, and they are designed to bolster the skills and qualifications of those who want to advance their careers in mining.
Courses will start in January and continue through to the end of March. All participants registered in the course are required to attend the January overview course as a prerequisite.
The courses are as follows:
- Jan. 16-17 Overview
- Jan. 30-31 Conveyances
- Feb. 13-14 Electrical
- Feb. 27-28 Safety Controllers
- March 12-13 Braking Systems
- March 26-27 Ropes and Attachments
“We're working with industry and we've made sure that all of our training courses starting in January meet the demands of the industry and especially the millwrights, heavy duty mechanics, electricians, supervisors, and anyone associated with hoist maintenance,” said Kim Lair, director of ancillary business operations at Cambrian, in a Nov. 22 news release.
“The skills they will learn in this course will follow them to any mining operation, across Canada or internationally.”
Cambrian College's corporate training department works with industry partners to develop and deliver programs that address industry needs.
The college is capable of delivering training programs in business, trades, technology, health and emergency care, environmental studies and community services.
It's also planning to offer mine hoist training courses in a separate block beginning in April.
