Phase II - 27 National Occupational Standards


Through HRSDC, funding was awarded to Construction Sector Council (CSC) to work with COEJATC in the development of National Occupational Standards for a select number of the 31 occupations identified in Phase I.  The steering committee comprised of representatives from the CSC, COEJATC and the Canadian Council of Directors of Apprenticeships (CCDA) narrowed the 31 occupations. The 29 occupations were divided into 11 subgroups. then two of the standards under the crane grouping were discontinued as they are currently included in the Mobile Crane Inter-Provincial Red Seal Occupation. These were Foundation and Shoring Operator and Drag Line/Clam Operator.
