HEAVY EQUIPMENT OPERATOR TRAINING

19 April 2017

Kitikmeot Corporation in partnership with Kitikmeot Inuit Association, Service Canada and Nuna Training Technologies, recently developed a Heavy Equipment Operator Training Program, complete with simulator training held within the Kitikmeot region.  A total of 8 Inuit participated in the 28 day training program that was delivered in Cambridge Bay, NU.

With the increased demand for Heavy Equipment Operators in our Hamlets and at northern mine sites, these accomplished individuals from the Kitikmeot region are now ready for the job!
