The Industry Training Authority of BC (ITA) recently announced its LNG Action Plan for LNG Trades Training, which addresses several key concerns in industry and government concerning shortfalls in skilled workers needed for expansion of LNG capacity in the province.

Gary Herman, the CEO and president of the ITA, spoke to the Journal of Commerce about the action plan and the significance of the new Red Seal designation for the Construction Craft Worker Program.

He also spoke about the importance of not only bringing aboriginal people into skilled trades but also getting training to more remote communities.

Construction safety officer Jim Blancard also weighed in on the plan, expressing hope that the new Red Seal designation would lead to high quality skilled workers and increased opportunities.
