Iron Ore Company of Canada, CNA launch future workforce program for electricians

They are collaborating on the development of new skills for the mining industry. The partners have been working jointly with the company’s training and maintenance departments in Labrador City, Nfld., to determine what skills are necessary for the automation, instrumentation and system configuration as the numbers of EVs proliferate.

IOC is sponsoring an 11-week pilot program, delivered through CNA’s customized and continuous learning department, kicked off on Sept. 12 with a group of seven IOC employees. It combines theory with practical exercises in a laboratory setting that simulates IOC’s real-work environment.

IOC produces iron ore pellets and concentrate for owners Rio Tinto (58.7%), Mitsubishi (26.2%) and the Labrador Iron Ore Royalty Income Corp. (15.1%).
