October 22, 2014

Building on the success of a recent pilot program, Northwest Community College’s School of Exploration & Mining has partnered with the Kitikmeot Inuit Association (KIA), the Mine Training Society of the Northwest Territories (MTS), and the Canadian High Artic Research Station (CHARS) on the remote delivery of a customized Natural Resource Field Assistant program. The program, delivered in Kugluktuk, prepares graduates for field work in the mineral exploration, environmental services, and natural resources fields. “The delivery of this program shows how Northwest Community College’s School of Exploration & Mining is nimble in its response to the needs of industry and communities to deliver programs remotely,” says NWCC President Ken Burt, adding that partnerships like these are what make innovative programming a reality for students. NWCC News
