The Wheels to Workforce program (W2W) is funded through Employment and Social Development Canada and open to a total of eight qualified students. “What I like about (this program) is it’s such a win-win. It’s a win for young people to get a foot in the door, but it’s a win for companies to take a chance on them,” said Darlene MacDonald, GPRC Continuing Education director. In order to qualify for the program, students must be between 18 and 30 years old; unemployed without assistance, underemployed, or a student; pass a medical exam; have a clean drivers abstract with no outstanding fines; and students must possess a valid Class 5 Alberta license with the graduated driver license removed. The eight-week program will consist of classroom learning, 30-hours of one-on-one driver training, and a $25-an-hour paid work practicum. “Employers who are hesitant to hire new drivers because of the added expense (of two drivers in the vehicle: a student and a teacher), this allows us to send a student to them when they graduate with all of the tickets and we can pay for them to work with that company for the three week (practicum). It saves the company money and allows the company to take a chance on someone new without paying the expense,” said MacDonald. Graduates leave with all the workforce tickets required to work in the field, including a Class 1 driver’s license, Alberta air brakes (Q Endorsement), H2S Alive, First Aid training, cargo securement, WHMIS, ODA (ENFORM’s Oilfield Driver Awareness), confined space awareness, ground disturbance, fall protection, petroleum safety training (ENFORM), detection and control, and hours of service and fatigue management. GPRC currently offers a similar program for about $8,500 to $10,000 per student, but with the Wheels to Workforce program this fee is waived.
