Training Notes:

  • Confined Space and Lock & Tag courses are based on the 2006 construction regulation changes. If you received your training prior to that a refresher is recommended.
  • Shock & Arc-flash is based upon the new CSA Z462 standard for workplace electrical safety for electricians. These standards are mandatory under the OHSA and Electrical Safety Code.  This is now a component of the new “Electrical Hazards” course.
  • The training coordinator receives numerous calls from members looking for specific training that they may require either to work in another local or to be dispatched for work from local 303. Many feel that we are constantly running courses and that it is easy to get training at any time. This is NOT the case. We are a small local with limited funds for training. To operate effectively a minimum number of participants are required. Courses are usually offered in spring and fall and may not run if there is not sufficient interest. The best advice is to take courses when they are offered, not when you need them.
  • If you are interested in any course please contact the Training Director – Dave Charron or speak with Kim or Debbie at the union office so you can be advised when that course is scheduled.
  • Courses are not only a place to receive information but also a place to share information.
  • Any suggestions on new courses to look into should go to the JCB (via Mark Cherney). Provided there is sufficient interest we will endeavour to set up or locate courses of interest to our members.
  • Local 105 Hamilton Courses
    • In order to be reimbursed for the cost, approval must be received from the JCB prior to booking.
    • For additional information or to book a class please call the local 105 training director; Chris Swick at 905-679-8880 or CSwick@ibewlu105.com .
  Please remember it is your responsibility to provide proof of training to the training coordinator if you want your records to be kept up to date.

  • Apprentices that are scheduled for training but have already received from another source must let the training coordinator know; otherwise they will be scheduled to attend all mandatory training.
  • Contact the training coordinator if you desire a copy of your training records; which are kept on file and will be issued as requested.
  • The coordinator must be forwarded proof of training; this is the only way a lost training card can be replaced without having to re-take the course.
  • If we are to continue to bill ourselves as the best trained, safest and most productive workforce; ongoing learning is essential. This can be achieved by attending any courses that are currently offered, attending courses offered by local 105, night courses or simply by making it a habit to obtain and read industry specific literature. This can be manufacturers’ literature or trade publications. Here are a few suggested sites that you may find interesting:
