The LNG Canada Project supports local and provincial people who want a career in the construction trades by giving them the practical experience they need to start a path to apprenticeship.

The Introduction to Industrial Construction (IIC) program was developed to support and strengthen the apprenticeship model on the LNG Canada project and develop future Journeypersons locally and throughout British Columbia. JGC Fluor (JFJV) developed the program in partnership with the Industry Training Authority BC (ITA BC), Coast Mountain College (CMTN) and UA Piping Industry College of BC (UAPICBC).

Program Description

The Introduction to Industrial Construction (IIC) program is a 4-week boot camp training experience consisting of practical projects in all types of weather to provide the participants an experiential understanding of industrial construction. Instructors will assess suitability for working in industrial construction as well as allowing participants the opportunity to reflect on their suitability for a career in construction.

The goal of this program is to provide local Northwest BC people with the opportunity to gain apprenticeships in a construction trade with a JFJV subcontractor. Participants will be exposed to different skills and techniques, hand tools, and safe work practices in an outdoor classroom, regardless of the weather and environmental conditions with minimal classroom based instruction. They will also learn about different skilled trades, the expectations of an apprenticeship, and the culture and lifestyle of working on a large Industrial construction site.

Over the 4-week program, the training will cover the following;

  • Basic Safety
  • Basic Communication Skills
  • BC Apprenticeship system and the different trades
