Alberta's workforce now has the option to gain more internationally recognised certificates thanks to a recent collaboration between TWI Canada and InnoTech Alberta, a subsidiary of Alberta Innovates. TWI is recognised globally for delivering high-calibre training and certification programmes.
This collaboration will bring high-profile training opportunities to the province that include advanced NDT (non-destructive testing) training programmes, plastic joining, fitness-for-service, plant inspection, integrity management and risk-based inspection courses with worldwide recognised certifications.
"Equipping Alberta's skilled workforce with globally recognised technical certifications is an investment that helps make the industries in which they work stronger," said Laura Kilcrease, CEO, Alberta Innovates.
"The collaboration between TWI and InnoTech Alberta can prepare the platform for Alberta's workforce to continuously improve, which is a key to success," said Reza Arjmand, country manager for TWI Canada.
A wide range of Alberta's workforce could benefit from these TWI training courses: university graduates, post-graduates, welders, technicians and engineers who are looking for on-the-job training to improve the quality of their products or services.
The collaboration between TWI and InnoTech Alberta will initially offer the following courses:
In addition, training courses such as Digital RT, Thermographic inspection, Corrosion Detection and Monitoring, AUT, Poly Test and others will be added to the programme.
Speaking on the collaboration, Sean Watt, Senior Research Specialist at InnoTech Alberta, said, "This is a first-of-its-kind collaboration. The level of training and certification that we can now offer Albertans exists only through this partnership. It will take our skillset to the next level."
