“If this course is offered again I will highly highly recommend it to everyone. This course has taught me so much about myself and empowered me and taught me so many awesome skills. I’m going to be sad when it’s done lol.”

NMSC’s Women in Industry group of 8 received hands-on chainsaw training and caught a feeling of empowerment and motivation to break new ground for themselves and other women – in a world traditionally worked in by men.
At UCN’s Northern Manitoba Mining Academy in Flin Flon, MB, the group has started hands-on training that in addition to chainsaw handling, will include skid steer, power tool and fire extinguisher operation, and underground equipment training through a simulator. All of these trainings extend the legislated safety trainings received in the weeks earlier.
At NMSC, we’re excited for this mighty group to cut into the industry world!
