NDT Industry National Training Trust Fund
Nondestructive Testing is a crucial yet complex industry. As such, it is imperative that the personnel who operate in the industry must be correctly qualified and up-to-date in their training and education in order to carry out their duties.
The Collective Agreement between the Nondestructive Testing Management Association and the Quality Control Council of Canada outlines the provision for the Training Fund. For each hour worked, the employer makes a contribution to the NDT Industry National Training Trust Fund, which is used to reimburse eligible members for education, training and licensing related costs.
The NDT Industry National Training Trust Fund ensures that all QCC members throughout Canada receive the same level of access to training opportunities and no longer have regional restrictions or discrepancies on what is covered.
The new NDT Industry National Training Fund RULES AND REGULATIONS / RÈGLES ET RÈGLEMENTS define the expenses eligible for reimbursement under the plan. You are required to seek PRE-APPROVAL BEFORE taking any courses.
