A new program in Nova Scotia will allow businesses to access training that will help them win major projects in areas such as shipbuilding and offshore oil exploration. The program offers customized training on pricing for profit, budgeting and financial management, responding to requests-for-proposals, and sales and negotiations. The program is being provided as a partnership between the province and the Excellence in Manufacturing Consortium and will be delivered through the Workplace Education Initiative. “We have a number of major projects about to get underway, and we want our local companies to have a good shot at winning those contracts,” said NS Labour and Advanced Education Minister Kelly Regan.
