To all IBEW Local Union staff and members:
RE: Western JETS Course Reimbursement
As a point of information at the last Western JETS board meeting it was decided to better engage our contractor partners, the following courses will no longer be reimbursed by the Western JETS and safety training will be provided by our contractors as per WorkSafe BC regulations.
Aerial Work Platform
Construction Safety Officer Training
Electrical Project Supervision
Low Voltage courses required for OEM warranty
As we believe supervision training is a very important aspect of the trade we will continue to reimburse for Front Line Leadership. It has proven to be a more effective training tool, meets the same high gold seal standard and is a greater value versus the Electrical Project Supervision courses.
Due to recent conflicts the following changes have been made to the reimbursement policy.
FSR training will only be reimbursed with a sponsorship letter from a union employer or a Letter of Recognition with the Local Union.
