Indigenous Training Programs for Local Workforce Development
Provide employment-driven, culturally relevant, and vocational training that meet the geographical needs of your region.
First launched in 2006, our Indigenous Environmental BEAHR Training Programs continue to share a simple goal: to provide introductory workforce training to help First Nations, Metis and Inuit communities across Canada work in the environmental sector. Because of the environmental diversity across Canada, the program is customized to meet local needs based on a variety of components from local community needs to geographic factors.
As a licensed BEAHR trainer, you will not only deliver these 1 to 16-week employment-focused courses, but also help build relevant skillset among your local Indigenous partnerships to help them secure meaningful jobs in their local areas. You will hone the course focus on skill competencies and jobs relevant to your local area. Your work will have a positive impact on the Indigenous communities you serve, students and graduates, and, ultimately, your business.
We have already had more than 3700 students from more than 240 Indigenous communities across Canada graduate from our programs. With your help, as a licensed BEAHR trainer, we will grow our membership and help youth prepare to enter the environmental field with this valuable certification in their hands.
