OTT Update

The Orientation Technology Training Program for women started their classes on Monday in Happy Valley Goose Bay.

We spoke to Suzanne Charlton, the Community Development Coordinator for the College of the North Atlantic.

She says the length of the program has been cut this year.

The program will now run for sixteen weeks.

Charlton says there are eleven students registered in the program.

70 percent of those registered are Nunatsiavut beneficiaries.

She adds the students will be learning electrical, carpentry, heavy equipment and welding.

The participants will also receive certification in boat and fire arm safety, fitness and first aid.
