Youth between the ages of 18-30 are being given the opportunity to train for a construction career with Scott Steel Erectors through the Metal Building Systems Erectors Certificate Program at The Centre for Skills Development & Training. A job is guaranteed at the end of the program for successful graduates. "If young people like to work outdoors and are interested in traveling across Canada to work, all expenses paid, this may be the program for them," says Nancy Moore, Senior Programs Manager at The Centre. The two-part program consists of eight weeks in-class/hands-on training and ten weeks of monitored/paid work placement. The program is held at The Centre's Burlington training facility and takes students out on job sites within the first few weeks of the program. Students learn how metal building systems are built, drawing, blueprint reading, welding, cladding, roofing; gain certification in Fall Arrest Training, Standard First Aid, WHMIS, as well as essential measurement and workplace communication skills. All successful graduates are guaranteed employment with Scott Steel Erectors upon program completion. Scott Steel Erectors Inc. is a Burlington-based company that has experienced active growth erecting medium to large pre-engineered and conventional steel buildings. Its projects are located across Canada, the United States and even as far as the Bahamas and Jamaica. "We're looking for people who want to build a long term career," says Dan Scott, president of Scott Steel Erectors. "For anyone who is looking to join a leader to be a leader, this program is an excellent opportunity."
