CNA, Vale partner on alternate pathway to careers in the mining industry

The College of the North Atlantic and Vale Newfoundland and Labrador have partnered to create an alternate pathway for those who are interested in pursuing careers in the mining industry but do not meet Vale’s minimum education requirements. CNA’s Office of Customized and Continuous Learning will be providing Test of Workplace Essential Skills (TOWES) assessments for Vale applicants who have not achieved a Grade 10 education to assess their eligibility for jobs such as Mine Operators, Mill Operators, Maintenance Assistants, Job Readiness Trainees, and Underground Trainees. The testing will be held in Corner Brook, Gander, Happy Valley-Goose Bay and St John’s in May, and will be expanded as needed to meet demand.
