NORCAT opens training facility on Boréal campus

October 7, 2014

The Northern Centre for Advanced Technology has opened a new location on the campus of Collège Boréal in Timmins, to help meet a need for health and safety training and programming among industry clients in the area. The new facility will offer a full complement of programs, delivered via hands-on classroom work, e-learning, and the use of state-of-the-art simulation equipment. “We’ve been doing business in Timmins for many, many years and we want to offer—and our customers were asking for—more enhanced services in the Timmins area similar to what we offer in Sudbury. The only way to really do that is to get permanent boots on the ground in the Timmins area,” said NORCAT Director of Training and Development Jason Bubba. Bubba also said that he looks forward to establishing a strong partnership with Boréal.
