Introduction to Industrial Construction Boot Camp


Terrace, November 14 – December 9, 2022

JGC Fluor Joint Venture (JFJV) is excited to announce another Introduction to Industrial Construction Boot Camp in Terrace from November 14 to December 9, 2022. 

If you are interested in a trades career but aren’t sure where or how to get started, this free-of-charge boot camp might be for you!

What is it?

JFJV developed the four-week program in partnership with the Piping Industry College of BC and the Industry Training Authority BC. It’s a comprehensive program which gives trainees real-life exposure to the ins and outs of working on a construction site. The program will commence outside, under any weather conditions, provide exposure to numerous trades, replicate life on a real construction site, and have some in-class training.

During your time in boot camp, you will receive training in the following areas:

  • BC Apprenticeship System Overview
  • Basic Workplace Safety
  • Introduction to Power Tools
  • Introduction to Hand Tools
  • Working at Heights
  • Mobile Elevated Work Platforms 
  • Confined Space Entry
  • Basic Communication Skills
  • Basic Employability Skills
  • Hands-on Construction Projects

This is a great way to determine if you are suited for a trades career and discover which may interest you the most! Meet experts within the industry, learn alongside like-minded individuals, and at the end, we work with you to help you find an introductory role in your desired trade. 

These trades include: 

  • Pipefitting 
  • Electrical 
  • Carpentry
  • Welding
  • Other industrial trades

What will you be doing? 

During your four weeks at boot camp, you will be working alongside your colleagues to complete a practical construction project. During the completion of this project, you will be exposed to safety guidelines, tools, hand skills/techniques, exposure to aerial platform lifts, scaffolding, and much more.

In addition, you will learn how to operate safely in an industrial setting. Interspersed within the real-life outdoor construction setting, you will also learn from industry professionals from various unions and the UA Piping College in a classroom. Classroom learning includes a resume workshop and basic communication skills.

This 4-week book camp runs Monday to Friday during regular working hours.
