Remember to be aware of the height you're working at. The fall could turn out to be more dangerous than you thought.

There is no other trades organization in Atlantic Canada so dedicated to training as the Atlantic Canada Regional Council.
Training is the cornerstone of our future. If we are to be competitive, and to increase our market share over time, we must do so on the basis of a membership who lead their trade in competence and productivity. Neither of those qualities happens without a commitment to offering the best training in Atlantic Canada.
