North West Redwater Partnership is committed to the development and growth of the construction workforce and recognizes that investments to support training and development are essential to the success of the Project and the ongoing maintenance of the operations. A consistent lesson-learned from other industry projects is that the quality of management/supervision directly correlates to level of productivity and turnover. The project needs to set standards and expectations for the level of supervision this project requires to be successful.
The attraction, retention and training of apprentices are a key component in the success of the project. Contractors will be responsible to implement an apprentice mentoring program in support of this. The Construction Owners Association of Alberta (COAA) has developed a Best Practice that can be used in its entirety or as a guide. Furthermore, NWR recognizes the challenges faced by apprentices in this industry and supports the timely and successful completion of their apprenticeships.
Successful construction execution relies heavily on the quality of supervisors. Apprenticeship and Industry Training implemented the Industrial Construction Crew Supervisor Designated Occupation and is deemed a Best Practice in the industry. NWR Sturgeon Refinery supports and promotes the Industrial Construction Crew Supervisor (ICCS) Certification. For more information on the ICCS Certification process for employees and employers visit www.fuelyourcareer.ca. If you are interested in writing the ICCS exam on site please visit the Events page for scheduled dates.
Better SuperVision is for Building Trades members and is a comprehensive learning process designed to equip supervisors with leadership skills that will help create a safe, productive and motivated workforce. It is one of the training programs that is accepted by AIT as part of the qualification process for obtaining ICCS certification. NWR is proud to support this program and sponsor on-site training sessions. Please visit the Events page for scheduled classes.
NWR supports the ICCS Certification Program and is making LSE available to supervisors seeking the designation. This two-day course will assist managers and supervisor to integrate health and safety into their everyday planning and to create and promote safe and health work environments. Please visit the Events page for scheduled classes.
