Our natural resources training programs are designed to provide students with practical learning experiences and valuable networking opportunities in a relatively short period of time. Ranging from 4 to 20 weeks, our programs have become the preferred industry training model across British Columbia.
Practical Skills and Connections
With a focus on experiential learning, our programs take place outside the traditional classroom setting, enabling participants to get outdoors and develop the practical skills employers are looking for. Many of our programs include a multi-week job placement so students can gain work experience and make the connections they’ll need for the next step in their careers.
Our natural resources skills training is ideal for non-traditional learners who prefer to learn by doing. With so many potential career paths in the natural resource sector, our staff provides 1-on-1 support throughout our programs to help each student find their niche in the industry and thrive.
Our program instructors are knowledgeable professionals from the field. Backed by years of industry experience, they provide students with a safe training environment as well as valuable industry connections.
Our goal is to ensure that new skills translate into long-term, rewarding employment opportunities for our graduates. Most of Stillwater’s programs include several essential resource-related certifications and a work experience placement to facilitate the transition into the industry.
