Camosun, NSCC team up with industry partner to support marine industry training

October 10, 2018

Camosun College and Nova Scotia Community College have partnered with Thales Canada to help meet the demand for the specialized skills required to complex marine maintenance and repair work. The partnership will see the participants engage in a bi-coastal analysis of the supply chain for professionals who can provide in-service marine support, with an aim to supporting the needs of the Royal Canadian Navy’s Arctic and Offshore Patrol Ships and Joint Support Ships built under the National Shipbuilding Strategy. A Camosun release notes that the first step under this agreement is a work force study that will provide insight into the marine in-service supply chains and inform industry and the colleges’ approach as they develop new and enhanced programming. Camosun
