Aurora submits funding proposal to develop mine remediation programs


Aurora College has submitted plans to develop new courses that will address the Northwest Territories’ need for skilled workers with mine remediation and reclamation knowledge. In an email to Cabin Radio, Aurora VP of Education and Training Jeff O’Keefe said that the college has submitted a funding proposal to create two programs: a Northern Technician program, which will primarily provide professional development training to current technicians in or those wanting to switch to the remediation sector; and Northern Remediation Monitoring program, which will help learners develop their skills to become monitoring technicians. If the programs are approved, planning to develop the new programs’ curriculum, delivery models, and evaluation assessments is expected to begin this fall.
