We have provided and continue to provide technical safety training for the Ontario Electrical League’s member, CLAC, Progressive Contractors Association of Canada employer members and a large number of other organizations. Upon completion of our in class program, our graduates who meet Merit Ontario, CLAC Union minimum standards are granted access with these organizations. This provides employers with a huge advantage because they have the opportunity to hire pre-screened employees, who have met the standard set by employers like you, in the industry.
Through our industry affiliations, we are helping to bridge the gap for employers and graduates by linking both to significant financial incentives currently available through federal and provincial governments.
