EnviroTrec Hosts Senior Aerospace Industry Representatives on Tour of the Neeginan Institute of Applied Technology

On May 8 2014, six senior aerospace industry guests attended a tour of the Neeginan Institute of Applied Technology. The tour was facilitated by EnviroTREC by request of our special guests, which included representatives from General Electric, WestCaRD, Province of Manitoba Aerospace, and the Manitoba Aerospace Human Resource Council. The tour was organized out of an interest in gaining a better understanding of Neeginan’s contribution to our aerospace community, with an intention to view and discuss gas turbine training in Manitoba and the successes of the Neeginan program. During this tour, we were advised that the Neeginan GT training program, which lasts up to a year in length, was operating at completion and employment rates of 90%.
