The reading of construction blueprints is a foundation skill in construction. All construction professionals, regardless of trade or whether they are working in the field or in the office, must know how to read blueprints.

This fundamental skill set is used during all aspects of a job, from bidding a job, to planning the completion of a task at the foreman level, or even making simple references in regards to circuit loading at the apprentice level.

The ability to read a print is going to enable the worker to complete a job or task, with the necessary accuracy that is required based on a bided contract. If done incorrectly, there could be serious financial or safety implications.

This course will take the participants through the stages of blue print reading including understanding symbols, dimensions, elevations, different drawings, understanding job specifications, interpreting information of different schedules that are included in a print package.

This course will enable the participants to walk through a real set of commercial blue prints for a mid-size job. The second part of the course will focus on various group work/ case studies that are designed to dissect aspects of a certain task, this will assist the learner in breaking down the information presented on a print, for ease of understanding.

 

Course topics

  • Blue print reading basics, understanding the symbols, notations, abbreviations and schedules
  • Finding information using blueprints
  • Layout basics
  • Architectural, civil, electrical and mechanical drawings and how they fit together.
  • Using scales properly

Sign up today for Canada’s leading Canadian Fire Alarm and Life Safety Systems training course. Our course goes well beyond the recitation of Codes and Standards. Complete with 8 Interactive Workshops on fire alarm protection systems that examine the purpose and specific application of the different codes and standards that regulate the industry. Avoid installation errors, failed inspections and false alarms! This interactive course maximizes its impact through dynamic curriculum and a learning environment that encourages discussions with other course attendees. Workshops are taught by a recognized and experienced fire protection professional who understands today’s changing safety dynamics.

You’ll bring your knowledge up-to-code with in-depth instruction that focuses on the correct design, installation, testing, and use of fire alarm and signaling systems.

Technical workshops and exercises are based on the types of challenges you encounter in the field, so you’ll leave with a wealth of practical tips, insights, and solutions you can immediately implement back on the job. This course will review the types of fire alarm systems, their selection and their applications for structures and processes. It will also cover special systems designed to prevent costly, life threatening industrial fires and/or explosions.

Upon completion, students will understand:

  • Current Industry Standards
  • Code Compliance
  • Risk Management
  • Design, Budgeting, Installation and Verification
  • Inspection, Maintenance and Troubleshooting
  • Detection
  • Alarm Signaling and Monitoring
  • Suppression
  • Evacuation
  • Emergency Lighting
  • Emergency Backup and Generators

Students will also be able to:

  • Navigate through the relevant codes to find required compliance
  • Review key changes in industry standards and codes new to fire alarm systems
  • Identify the key elements of all phases of a fire alarm system’s life
  • Identify the stakeholders at different stages of a fire alarm system’s life
  • Recognize the function of major fire alarm system components
  • Locate and apply key fire detection requirements for emergency control functions such as door control and elevator recall, security access/egress and offsite monitoring
  • Calculate the required spacing and determine the correct placement of fire detection and signalling devices

It is well recognized that the majority of problems for a leader usually do not stem from their lack of technical skills and experience as electricians. Most IBEW foremen are very competent journeymen who possess excellent skills when it comes to process and managing a project. The simple reality is that the majority of problems for foreman stem from their lack of “soft skills”, that is, their ability to deal with conflict, hold their crew members accountable, earn respect, build trust, team build, coach, communicate effectively and when necessary how to change the behaviour of specific crew members when there is a performance issue.

  • The Gold Seal Accredited Frontline Foremen Level 1 Leadership training course is specifically designed for foremen who want to develop their leadership soft skills as they know full well that this is where the majority of issues like safety concerns, conflict, ongoing grievances, poor productivity, cost overruns, time issues and stress can originate from. The two days are highly interactive with plenty of opportunities for IBEW participants to use “real work situations” that they are currently experiencing to help reinforce key learnings.

 

The Front Line Leadership level 1 is designed to create a solid foundation for all members of IBEW local 993 to operate effectively as a team on the job and how to properly engage the IBEW Steward if required. We have designed a system that will allow us to communicate with deeper level of understanding and consistency regardless of crew composition or job site locations.  The ideology of What-How-Can“ or Won’t will create ownership, accountability, and a better understanding for our leaders and members to understand the responsibilities and expectations of their positions.  Members will also learn how to properly engage in the progressive discipline process.  The progressive discipline process allows our members to have a voice that will be heard and ensure any issues are effectively documented if communication breaks down at the front line level for any reason.  This course is a must if you want to be a part of the growth and future success of our great organization

    Frontline Foremen Level 1 Leadership Training

    Offered by New Quest Coaching & Consulting

     

    One of the most of important factors in ensuring the success of a company, a project and a commitment to excellence and safety is having highly skilled leaders. With the growing demand by a variety of industries for skilled journeymen who also have Foremen leadership training, New Quest Coaching & Consulting will now be offering for the first time its extremely popular Frontline Foremen Level One leadership training online over a day period.

     

    Condensed down into a five to six hour training session that will be done online via Go To Meetings, the course will give participants an excellent foundation in some of the fundamental leadership skills required to successfully lead teams and crews who today are made up of a very diverse group i.e. experience, skills, four distinct age/generations, gender and a variety of diverse ethnic backgrounds.

     

    The simple reality is that the majority of challenges for foreman stem from their lack of “soft skills”, that is, their ability to deal with conflict, hold their crew members accountable, earn respect, build trust, team build, coach, communicate effectively and when necessary how to change the behaviour of specific crew members when there is a performance issue.

     

    Some of the biggest problems on the jobsite do not come from a foreman’s lack of technical skills. Instead the problems stem from the foreman’s lack of leadership soft skills and the irony is, it is the one area where they have received the least amount of training!

     

    Course Outline (5 – 6 hours) – This Gold Seal Accredited (Canadian Construction Association) Level One Online Foremen Training course is specifically designed for foremen who want to develop their leadership soft skills as they know full well that this is where the majority of issues like safety concerns, conflict, ongoing grievances, poor productivity, cost overruns, time issues and stress can originate from.

     

    Now for the first time, this extremely popular leadership training course will be offered online to IBEW Lu 993 members, giving them the flexibility to do the training from their home!!
