The B.C. Mining School Is a co-operative effort, with the pro- vincial education dtpartment the federal government, the B.C. Mining Association, ant Canada Manpower all finding men who want to learn a sltil in one of the few industries that needs workers. Forty men attend at each ses. sion, learning open pit mining and heavy equipment operatioi; from instructors like school principal Stan Hunter, who has extensive experience, as well as a degree in mining engineer- ing. POPULAR COURSE Mr. Hunter said the school has received little publicity, but has had little trouble filling its 40 open spots. Selection of students is done by Canada Manpower and suc- cessful applicants get income replacement money during the training period. They must have at least a Grade 10 education and be physically suited for the rugged job. 'Most of them make the grade." said Mr. Hunter, "but occasionally we get a student who is obviously not suited, and advise him to try something else." One of the students at a re- cent session was Les Weitzell, who used to drive a milk truck in Vancouver. "I figured there was no fu- ture being a he said. When heard about this course, I applied and got it. :'ve learned to operate machin- ery I never dreamed of using, and it's been a real challenge." Among the machines the stu- dents learn how to handle are: graders, loaders, bulldozers, power shovels, drilled and 35- ton trucks. John Pratt, 52, learned hard- rock mining the hard way, on a job in Quebec. "They should have had schools like this years he said, adding that he learned underground mining on that job but the open pit training at Hcssland should broaden his job opportunities. Graduates of the school have little trouble obtaining jobs. As each class graduates, rep- resentatives from many of B.C.'s mines are on hand to in- terview prospective workers. Many are hired on the spot. Mr. Hunter and his associates say the school is the best thing to change mining's image from that of wheeler dealers mak- ing money on stock promotion to that of a solid industry with skilled, well trained person- nel.
