NLCA Centre of Excellence
Upcoming Courses

Welcome to our Centre of Excellence

The Centre of Excellence – a pillar of YOUR NLCA: Together, we’re building Newfoundland and Labrador.

One of the core benefits of an NLCA membership is the opportunity to advance your professional standing and qualifications in the construction industry.

Our Centre of Excellence Education program helps you build the foundation that you need. Align your skills directly with those in the commercial & industrial construction industry, allowing you to continue working while gaining the skills needed in your career.

Our Program features a wide variety of education and training opportunities through live webinars and courses, as well as e-learning. New offerings are being added daily.

As the world is dealing with COVID-19, things are looking different at our Centre of Excellence, and learning for this period in time has shifted to solely online. NLCA can guarantee that the quality of life-long learning, mentorship & skills development, along with the connections that you will make through our webinars and courses will remain the same.

Great training on Saturday! Holly Hicks was so informative and an amazing teacher! Great job to her and the NLCA team on the delivery of the blueprint reading course.

I appreciate the thoughtful attention to detail and follow-up from the NLCA President & staff, like making sure in real-time that potential issues with virtual programing are addressed and resolved before the member even realizes that they might have a problem.

Richard Gosse, Partner, Cox & Palmer

Working as a Construction Supervisor in today’s industry I’m faced with situations almost on a daily basis that require fair, ethical judgments. The NLCA’s Construction Ethics course has helped heightened my awareness of the importance of ethical decision-making and has provided the tools to do so.

Participation in this course will help me to achieve my gold seal certification.

Richard Coffey, CET, Superintendent, Olympic Construction Ltd.

The Construction Ethics course narrows the gap between black and white ethical decisions faced in our industry

The course is relatable and informative, a must for both experienced and junior construction professionals.
