Supply Chain – the intermodal transportation of goods
Pan-pacific trade continues to increase, and Vancouver is primely situated as the continent’s busiest connection to the Pacific Rim. Both government and industry are investing heavily in expanding the existing infrastructure to facilitate further growth and VanAsep is ensuring that Aboriginal employment is an integral and advantageous part of the plan.
We have ratified an MOU with the Port of Metro Vancouver, Asia Pacific Gateway Skills Table, the Supply Chain Sector Council and local First Nations groups to train Aboriginals to fill the expected vacancies in the burgeoning supply chain sector. Offering courses through the Tsawwassen Gateway Skills Centre, FNES and Kwantlen Polytechnic’s material handlingand logistical training programs, we are uniquely situated to train individuals for the expansion of the Delta Port terminal and ancillary business development on Tsawwassen First Nation lands as well as Port operations throughout the Lower Mainland.
Aboriginal Skills Group is a member of the Warehouse Education Research Council (WERC), ensuring that all students are properly accredited and linked with employers to fill some of the thousands of job vacancies each year.
Supply Chain Foundation Program
Our Supply Chain Foundation program is a 6-week pre-entry strategy to train students with the practical and essential skills, safety training, and communication standards needed to succeed in the field. Students will be taught communication devices, marine shipping, air cargo and warehousing in classrooms throughout the Lower Mainland. Classroom instruction will be delivered in collaboration with industry partners and will include on-site field observations.
The Supply Chain Careers project will screen for continued learning and basic aptitudes and provide an introduction to supply chain careers to over 300 individuals in 2010-2012.
The Aboriginal Skills Group (formerly VanAsep Training Society) has now completed the “Supply Chain Careers Program” 2008-20102.
