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.


Regular Scheduled Training

Industrial Safety Trainers normally has a schedule that shows when we will be in certain cities and hamlets, but because of COVID-19 restrictions those schedules have been suspended.  As soon as we are able to travel through out NWT and Nunavut a new schedule will be posted.

Most of our courses are now available using the newest learning platform we call “Distance Learning”, this means we can teach these courses and participants can be anywhere to participate. If  you go to our course selection you will see when these courses are being offered and you can book a seat in those courses as well.  Industrial Safety Trainers has been approved by the WSCC to teach using this new format of learning.

You can schedule your own training session by contacting our office or click here to request a quote.
