Contract training

Trades Trailer training

Comprehensive trades training is now possible anywhere in Yukon that is accessible by road.

CNIM’s mobile trades training trailer and Cybermine training simulators allow Yukon University to deliver trades courses in smaller communities across the territory and at operating mine sites.

Contract courses are also available on site to communities or mine operators. These courses can lead to entry-level employment or provide professional development for those already working in the mining industry. CNIM can provide contract training for various and diverse industrial skills, from haul truck operator to rigging to WHMIS safety certification.

Mobile Trades Training Trailer

CNIM’s Mobile Trades Training Trailer and simulators allow Yukon University to deliver trades courses in smaller communities across the territory, as well as operating at mine sites.

The state-of-the-art facility is available for classes in welding, electrical, millwright and piping anywhere there is road access in the Yukon.

The lab can accommodate 16-24 students per year for pre-apprenticeship programs (usually 16-20 weeks in duration) as well as short trades-specific training in communities or mines as requested.

Equipment Simulators

Mineral resource companies and associated support industries are also welcome to inquire about accessing CNIM’s two mine training simulators. These units are capable of accommodating surface and underground training modules.

The simulators offer virtual-reality training platforms for students to learn how to operate complex and expensive equipment- without the risk of real-world mishaps.
