On the job training

Did you know that in the resource development industry there are employment opportunities where you can learn on the job? For example, you can be an electric shovel operator by starting as a mine operations labourer or you can be a mill control room operator by starting as a mill labourer. You can get a trade with an entry level position or you can go to school and become a geologist and work at an exploration site or active mine in Tahltan territory.

Career building

From an entry level position in mining you can become a highly skilled and well paid employee such as an underground miner, shovel operator, or mill control room operator without ever going to school or you can become a red seal journeyman or obtain a professional designation.

Certification

Did you know that from an entry level position in mining you can apply for apprenticeships or decide that you would like a post-secondary education and return to school and be supported by the Tahltan Central Government Education & Training funding program, Tahltan bursaries, your band, summer student programs, and co-op positions within the mining industry?


Discover opportunities

From Human Resources to an environmental technician, form a nurse to an oiler who makes sure all the stationary equipment is running smoothly, from a community liaison to getting a trade in the warehouse or operate a fuel truck that fills up equipment. The opportunities in resource development are endless.
