About Training in the North
Because of the distance between communities, most of our training has to be planned in advance. To keep the costing down for businesses, we try to get multiple business together to do the training, thus helping drive down the costing. If you need some training, let us know and we will contact other business in your community to see if we can get enough people together for training. If we are going to a smaller community, we will try and offer as much training as we can while we are there to allow those communities and business to ensure continued compliance with health and safety. If you want to be notified of when we will be in your area training clicking here.
