Upcoming Courses and Training News



Due to the high volume of members trained in the four required NBCSA safety course there is currently a low participation rate for scheduled courses. There are a required minimum number of participants required to put on the courses (12). If you require any of the courses you can do the following:


Contact Pat McGinnis at 635 1850 or email pat@ibew502.ca and put your name on a list. Once the minimum 12 people for the class have been met, a class will be scheduled and you will be notified of date and time.


Go to www.NBCSA.ca and look at their regularly scheduled courses in their calendar and pick the course you want and the date and then contact Pat McGinnis and I will contact NBCSA and schedule you in the course if they have room available. Please note these courses fill up fast. Also if you do not schedule through me NBCSA will invoice you directly and you will have to pay for the course to register and it is not reimbursable through the ECANB.

 All Apprentices who have outstanding Local 502 resources out on loan (Books for school, calculators etc..) are urged to return them to the training department so that other apprentices can use them. I will be contacting those who have finished school and still not returned them shortly.
