The GTAA COGEN and CUP Facility at Mississauga, ON, operated and maintained by SNC-Lavalin O&M has been supporting various colleges in Ontario to prepare students to achieve TSSA Certification in their Power Engineering Program.

 

On average 10 students, 3 to 4 at a time are taken during the year, for 1 to 3 months duration from Mohawk, Cambrian, St. Clair, Lambton, Georgian, Conestoga and Durham colleges. In addition, the management staff of the plant is part of the advisory group for the programs and visits the colleges occasionally, at their requests, to deliver presentations to the students at the college premises. The college staff also visits the facility.

 

As of May 2019, the facility has crossed-trained 100 students for the Power Engineering Program, who have achieved the desired certification from TSSA, thereby allowing them to seek employment in 1st, 2nd and 3rd class plants in various provinces. The facility continues to accept and train these students and the current batch is seen on the photo attached.

 

The facility has also received recognition from these colleges, in the past during their annual day at the College.
