ITA names qualified LNG training providers

The Industry Training Authority (ITA) named nine training providers qualified to deliver the Construction Craft Worker program in BC. 


This action is in direct response to the liquefied natural gas (LNG) industry’s demand for skilled tradespeople in BC. Construction trade helpers and labourers (construction craft workers) are at the top of the list of in-demand LNG occupations, with an anticipated demand of up to 11,800 construction trade helpers and labourers by 2018 based on five LNG facilities, ITA said i n a statement.

To prepare for the growing demand, ITA accelerated the development of occupational standards for the construction craft worker to ensure that post-secondary institutions could begin training British Columbians in early 2015.

The construction craft worker trade was recently announced as BC’s 48th Red Seal trade, meaning it meets the Canadian standard of excellence for skilled trades. Construction craft workers work primarily outdoors and their tasks include site preparation and cleanup, setting up and removing access equipment, and working on concrete, masonry, steel, wood and precast erecting projects. They handle materials and equipment, and perform demolition, excavation and compaction activities.
