VanAsep would like to congratulate the Hydro Power Plant Operator Training class on their recent graduation, hosted in Sechelt, BC. This pilot program and the 1st of its kind in Canada consisted of 8 hardworking students; that put in a great deal of dedication and committment to succeed in this demanding 18 week course. These students who are from separate First Nation communities throughout British Columbia, travelled and resided in 2 separate locations to complete the program. VanAsep is thankful to the Tsawwassen First Nation and Sechelt First Nation for hosting the students on their territory.
“I feel very fortunate to have this opportunity, to venture into an industry that opens its doors to First Nations involvement. The companies and organizations involved with constructing this program did an excellent job with the organization and selection of the right people to teach the curriculum.”
