Contract Training
NWCC training can also be customized to your needs. Whether you or your business are looking for a course the department already offers, or one specific to your work place, we can work with you to create a training solution through contract training. Courses can be delivered in your community, on your job site, or in our classrooms.

Call your local WTCS department today to discuss your contract training needs or fill out a Request for Quote form and email it to wtcs@nwcc.bc.ca. Remember to save the form to your computer before you fill it out!

Mobile Training
Mobile training units make it possible for NWCC to train students and workers directly in their home communities and on jobsites. This saves students, workers and industry time and money as it eliminates the need to travel. 

All of NWCC's mobile units are available through contract training.  

Mobile Safety Training Unit
The Mobile Safety Training Unit van is fully equipped to deliver health, safety, first aid, workforce and industry training courses such as Occupational First Aid Level 1, Transportation Endorsement, WHMIS, Bear Awareness, Transportation of Dangerous Goods and much more!

Mobile Computer Skills Training Unit
NWCC's WTCS department is looking to create a mobile lab to accommodate off-campus computer skills training. The Mobile Computer Skills Training Unit would offer a variety of courses such as Microsoft Office programs, Computer Camps for Elders, Webpage Design, Social Networking and much more!
