BCIT receives $3.3M to develop new mass timber training hub


The British Columbia Institute of Technology has received $3.3M from the Government of British Columbia to develop a mass timber training hub. BCIT will be use the funding to pilot two new courses that will address key knowledge gaps and prepare professionals to meet the skilled labour shortage in the industry. The courses will also complement the institute’s existing mass timber program. “Today’s funding announcement in support of mass timber training is a prime example of how BCIT, government and industry continue to collaborate to identify areas of need, and quickly build talent to support in-demand jobs across the province,” said BCIT President Jeff Zabudsky.
