Manitoba Infrastructure Maintenance Career Training Program

In the past, the approach to training in the maintenance field operations area had been at best sporadic and reactionary. Previously, the major focus of training had been safety related as a result of changes to Legislation, Regulations or as a result of accidents or incidents. While this is critical, it lacked structure, organization and did not address the growing operational or technological changes in field operations. In addition, there was a very limited view of maintenance work as a career which resulted in a lack of focus on employee development. In order to address this gap, Manitoba Infrastructure’s Maintenance Career Training (MCT) Program was developed with the following objectives: 1. Ensure that staff expertise is consistent in meeting service level expectations; 2. Encompass and recognize all training requirements that achieve these expectations; 3. Ensure the right staff are trained at the right time; 4. Promote competencies through accreditation/certification, and; 5. Provide staff with the opportunity to succeed and be promoted to higher Maintenance Worker positions by utilizing promotion through certification and qualification.
