Available Training by Department

IATSE Local 891 subsidizes the cost of a selection of skills upgrade training for members of each department.

Each department selects the training it would like to offer members on an annual basis. Budgets expire at the end of each year, so check back early in the year for changes to the list of approved courses.

To have input into what skills upgrade training is offered by a department, attend departmental meetings or contact the department chair with suggestions. If there isn't departmental training available, it's still possible to sign up for safety, supervisory, or labour education training. There are only a certain number of subsidized spots per approved course per year.

Please check back for the 2017 Departmental Training Booklet in early 2017.
