TD Bank and Cambrian College are introducing a new corporate training program that is set to send a charge throughout the mining industry.
Cambrian’s Director of Development and Alumni Brandi Brathwaite says TD Bank is contributing $150,000 to Cambrian’s Battery Electric Vehicle Training Program.
She says the funds will support curriculum development and delivery, hands-on training equipment and tools, and state-of-the-art software and audio-visual components to aid in virtual delivery when needed in a COVID-19 world.
Brathwaite adds the program includes an extensive eight-day course that is currently being offered
on-campus with each module requiring two days to complete, and covers all areas vital to proper maintenance training.
