Northwest Community College should keep training in Prince Rupert

The following was received as an open letter to Anne Rowse, NWCC Workforce Training and Continuing Students Program Officer.

The following was received as an open letter to Anne Rowse, NWCC Workforce Training and Continuing Students Program Officer.

My husband and I read in the Wednesday, November 28, 2012 edition of the Northern View about the 16 “high-end” courses of operating certificates and emergency duties related to the Marine Industry, which are now underway at the NWCC.

Why will a portion of these classes be taking place on Vancouver Island in the near future?

Capp’s Marine Education has been in Prince Rupert for 10 years now, and providing premium high-end courses for operating certificates and emergency duties related to the Marine Industry.

The courses of instruction are sanctioned by Industry Canada and Transport Canada Marine Safety, Ottawa. Providing these courses of instruction and certification is the exclusive reason for being in business. Capp’s Maine Education is a local business, right in downtown Prince Rupert.

So why are you and the NWCC taking business out of town, down south to Vancouver Island?

Why are you and the NWCC not keeping the training program here?

Sincerely

Elaine Calli
