Mayor and MP stop in at equipment training centre

Special to the Canadian

High Velocity Heavy Equipment Training (HVET) hosted Crowfoot MP Kevin Sorenson at the training centre Feb. 18 for a tour and a brief discussion on the benefits of the HVET program in Camrose.

Also in attendance for the tour, was the Mayor Marshall Chalmers. The tour was facilitated by general manger Deb DeJong, operations manager Shayne Bonnough and First Nations and community relations Liaison Dion Arnouse.

The discussion centered around the economic benefits of having a training center such as HVET in the community of Camrose and how the HVET training program provides the citizens of Alberta with a potentially life changing opportunity for a high paying and highly rewarding career.

"It was very reassuring for HVET to see, we have such proactive leaders such as the Honorable Kevin Sorenson and Mayor Chalmers who genuinely care about their communities," said Arnouse.

"The industry demand for Heavy Equipment Operators is very high across Canada and more so in Alberta and British Columbia. The HVET program is committed to providing the best environment and training for our students as this leads to a much higher probability of employment, we believe in doing things right."

HVET has forged great relationships with First Nations communities throughout Alberta with their unique and highly successful mobile training program where the training is brought right to the community.
