As a province-wide virtual hub, the BC Centre of Training Excellence in Mining (CTEM) facilitates collaborative, innovative training solutions for the mining industry and British Columbia communities. It achieves this by connecting industry, students, communities and training providers to meet their respective employment needs and by playing a leading role in determining industry skills requirements, facilitating related training, and supporting partners.
The British Columbia government initiated CTEM in late 2012 with the Ministry of Advanced Education being the key source of funding. The government designated Northwest Community College (NWCC) as the host institution. NWCC provides administrative and human resource support to the Centre. CTEM supports the development of effective mining training programs by all post-secondary training organizations across the province, including those at the School of Exploration and Mining at NWCC.
CTEM is supported by numerous industry and training partners who provide funding and in-kind support. Volunteers provide a key role in many of CTEM’s activities and as a source of a wealth of expert advice.
