Recertification


The QCCC National Training Society (NTS) has been approved by Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) to be an Approved Examination Centre (AEC) for Recertification Examinations in MT/PT/UT at our three existing Centres in Edmonton AB, Hamilton ON and Saint John NB.

To assist candidates in preparing for recertification examinations, the National Training Fund and QCCC National Training Society are sponsoring practical workshops at all three NTS locations. These services are intended for members and potential members to refresh their technical skills prior to undertaking the CGSB recertification exam(s). These services are at no cost to applicants currently employed by Union Companies.

NOTE: Non-union members are welcome to participate in our Workshop Program and can register using the enclosed Registration Form and paying the applicable fees.
