SIIT receives support to offer new forestry training

Thanks to support from the Government of Saskatchewan, the Saskatchewan Indian Institute of Technologies will deliver two new forestry sector training initiatives. A new Forestry Log Haul Step Program will provide students with the education and necessary hours of experience needed to become fully licensed as log haul drivers. SIIT will help graduates find employment opportunities and connect with forestry sector employers. The institute will also acquire two Simlog Simulators for its mobile job connection program, which helps northerners gain virtual worksite training and learn about safe heavy equipment operation. SK provided $505K to SIIT in support of these initiatives.
