Durham, OPG, IBB partner to meet boilermaker shortage

May 1, 2019

Durham College, Ontario Power Generation, and the International Brotherhood of Boilermakers have joined together to offer a three-week pre-apprenticeship program focused on essential boilermaker industry training. The program was developed in response to a projected shortage of boilermakers in the province and will introduce students to the boilermaker trade and provincial apprenticeship program. Durham’s Corporate Training Services will deliver the training to over 100 new pre-apprentices over the course of five intakes this spring and summer. Students will have the opportunity to work at OPG sites and learn from senior staff in the industry. Durham (ON)
