Training & Development


Building operators and maintenance workers can't rest solely upon past training and work experiences; they must take part in a continuous education program to add and improve trade skills.  The safety of building occupants and the upkeep of the building is at stake.

It is vital that they increase their value to the organization and to enhance their future career prospects. 

Offered by Registered Education Providers (R.E.P.s)
