Pacific NorthWest LNG outlines background to involvement with trades training programs

In the latest of a number of community engagement video presentations, Pacific NorthWest LNG has provided a short overview of the trades opportunities in the community that the energy proponent is contributing funding towards.

A focus on developing skills through welding, millwright and electrical programs offered in Prince Rupert is part of the two minute presentation.

The video traces some of the background to the Coastal Pathways Program, a portion of which receives funding from Pacific NorthWest LNG and other industrial proponents in the region.

Anne Rowse, the Western Regional Director for NorthWest Community College provides the short sketch of the cooperation between the college, School District and local industry and the benefits that the program offers local students.

Highlighting as well, the opportunity that local trades training presents for them to start their careers in their own hometown, allowing them to remain on the North Coast once they have their trades certification.

A look at some of the trades training opportunities through NWCC can be reviewed here.

The education overview can be found below, other videos in the series can be found on the Pacific NorthWest LNG Facebook page.
