Local 1 Nova Scotia Conducts Second Training Program

Journal: Issue 2 - 2014

Local 1 NS hosted its second 20-week bricklayer training program at the Sydport Industrial Park in Sydney from November to March 2014. Nine students completed the program that included safety training, shop sessions, theory, and on the job training with various contractors.

Local 1 NS President James Moore praised the program, launched in June 2013: “This second 20-week program was accomplished thanks to the hard work and dedication of our instructors and students.”

Mindful of the varying types of skilled construction training available in each Canadian province, Moore added, “Apprentices are the future of our Local, and developing BAC-specific training is the approach that will keep our members employed and competitive in the years ahead.”
