New powerline technician apprenticeship committee at Cambrian.

A new committee consisting of professionals from Powertel, Greater Sudbury Hydro, Anixter and CVRD-Inco has been formed at Cambrian College to address the provincial shortage of skilled workers in the powerline industry.

Known as PowerTech, the committee signed an agreement at the college on April 11 to see to the education and training of powerline apprentices. It will be involved in the registration and sponsorship of apprentices, who will be able to complete in-school requirements for the trade while gaining on-the-job experience through co-op placements.

PowerTech is the first new local apprenticeship committee formed in the province in the last 15 years, and seeks to ensure that qualified employees will be available for a variety of positions within the powerline industry.
