EHRC unveils National Occupational Standard for electrical trainers


April 25, 2014 – Electricity Human Resources Canada (EHRC) has outlined a new National Occupational Standard (NOS) for industry trainers that provide practical guidance for businesses, educators and job seekers within the electricity industry.

According to the EHRC, the standard will help unify the Canadian electrical and renewable energy sector by identifying the skills, knowledge and attitudes required for industry trainers employed by electrical organizations and utilities across the country. In addition to the standard, an Essential Skill Profile (ESP) has been developed for the industry trainer role, which describes how workers in an occupation use each of the nine essential skills: reading, document use, writing, numeracy, oral communication, thinking, digital technology, working with others and continuous learning.
