On the Job Training for Industrial Mechanic / Conveyor Technician
May 2, 2020
Tom had some experience as a Conveyor Technician but most of it had been on short-term contracts and on-call jobs because of his lack of training. Frustrated after multiple lay-offs, Tom’s employer recommended that he connect with WorkBC Langley to get access to employment services and potentially access the Wage Subsidy Program.
The Employment Placement Specialist (EPS) provided Tom with information about the Wage Subsidy Program and how it would support him, to obtain the skills and training needed to secure sustainable employment. Once Tom understood the benefits, the EPS worked with Tom and the employer to develop a Wage Subsidy agreement.
Since then, Tom has completed the on the job training and has secured full-time employment and maintained his employment even through these unsettling COVID-19 times!
