Mining Fundamentals Student-focused Mine Haul Truck Operator Training Message from the Dean: Kristina Van De Walle I wish I could be joining you today however, schedule conflicts just didnt permit me. (I havent figured out how to be in two places at once just yet!) I want to express my sincere thanks to all of our partners and students who have made our Chetwynd and Tumbler Ridge campuses very busy places! Our goal is to meet the training needs of the coal industry for the communities of Chetwynd and Tumbler Ridge. Currently we are offering our Mining Fundamentals and Professional Office Skills programs as well as on-demand and scheduled Workforce Training courses. We rely heavily on hearing from you, our industry partners, businesses and individuals to make sure we are tailoring our training to the career needs of the region. Please feel free to contact me or your local campus any time to begin or continue the

dialogue of what our next steps could/should be regarding courses and programs. Enjoy the rest of the 2012 Coal Forum! [email protected] or direct line: (250) 784-7529 Mining Fundamentals Program Career entry program for mine haul truck driver. Partner taking mine tour September 2010 Success Story
