Keyano College announces second round of staff, program cuts

June 26, 2015

Keyano College has announced a second round of program and staff cuts, reports Fort McMurray Today. A number of its Trades and Industrial Safety Certifications courses are being discontinued due to a drop off in local demand and a decline in college revenues. Keyano will continue to offer select industry safety courses, such as the Oil Sands Safety Association Basic Safety Orientation, an industry standard. With the cancellation of the safety certificate courses, Keyano is cutting five positions—four instructors and one coordinator. A further eight support staff positions are also being cut, bringing the total number of staff reductions to 31 since June 1. Fort McMurray Today
