The Beginning

CICT was the vision of two men who identified the need for standardized safety training for contractors based on industry needs and best practices.  A more comprehensive understanding of safe work practices based on current legislation and site specific needs were developed and drove CICT to where it is today. Worker and employee safety is our primary focus.

Scope of Interest

CICT recognizes the investment of training employees and we posses a system made of: training, certification, and re-certification that is recognized site-wide. This system was implemented to assist in helping reduce the financial burden of training and re-training employees. Course details and sample training materials are contained throughout this package for evaluation purposes. Each workshop consists of classroom instruction; workshop exercises, written exam followed by practical training exercises/exams (when needed).

Training courses are scheduled at the convenience of our clients and their needs. Arrangements for on-site training may be coordinated at the client’s discretion. Additionally, training can also be scheduled at the CICT training center where we offer a large variety of courses each week. Please visit our online calendar.

In addition to CICT’s courses that are currently available, we work with clients to develop and/or customize courses to meet any special requirements or standards for their worksites. Along with regular hours, training is available for weekends and evenings.

CICT can also accommodate training outside of the Fort McMurray region when requested.


Upon successful completion of a course (passing grade on the theory portion and practical exam), participants will receive their certification.
