Safe Landings: Adult Basic Education at Bristol Aerospace (2010)

In the 1990s, Winnipeg-based Bristol Aerospace launched a workforce skills upgrading program to help prepare the company to expand into new markets.

Bristol began with a workplace-based Adult Basic Education (ABE) program offering 80 hours of training over 20 weeks. From there, the company partnered with Red River Community College to develop and deliver technical training programs.

Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR) strategies were used to reduce the time workers needed to meet national training standards required for certification in their trades. Workers took part in just those training elements for which they lacked skills, rather than an entire course.
