As the owner of a small contracting company I understand the importance of keeping my employees safe. The success of my business depends on me being able to return my employees home safely to their families at the end of their workday and have them at work the next day to service our clients. We`ve had a safety program in place for years but recently organizations I contract for and my insurance company were requesting that we become “Safety Certified”. I reached out to METI for assistance in getting us audit ready; they reviewed my safety documentation, helped us with some revisions and coached me on the audit process. I`m happy to say that we were successful in achieving our “Safety Certified” accreditation.
Thank you to METI and Byron Donovan (Safety Advisor) for the professional assistance and for meeting our needs and timelines.

September, 2017: We have developed a great relationship with METI and their Pre-Employment Scaffolding Program over the past five years. Numerous graduates have been employed by Panels and Pipes and are always very well prepared to begin their careers as Scaffolders. They are well trained, knowing and understanding the basics of scaffolding and how to construct it safely. Along with their SAIA Scaffolding accreditation and added safety certifications METI graduates are always on the top of our list when hiring new Scaffolders.

September, 2017: METI has been providing excellent service, and reliable training for CLAC for many years. Their diverse course offerings, from OSSA certifications to SAIA Pre-Employment and journeyperson scaffold training has proven to be extremely valuable to us. Our continued strong relationship with METI allows CLAC members to access training in Eastern Canada. METI instructors are knowledgeable and have shown a real passion for ensuring our members are trained to the highest industry standards.

June 28, 2016: As a recent graduate of the SAIA (Scaffold and Access Industry Association) Program (June, 2016) as well as the Environmental Health and Safety Program (fall, 2015), I just wanted to thank all the dedicated staff at METI, especially Gerard Jessome, for passing along their infinite knowledge, skills and contacts during my training. With Gerard’s assistance, I was offered a position with Brock Canada Field Services immediately following the completion of my course. As a “mature” female student who has never worked in the oil and gas industry, I believe this opportunity presented itself on the basis of the excellent training provided by METI, and the respect they have earned for producing well qualified graduates. Keep up the great work!
I would like to thank METI for the great SAIA scaffold course they put on. I was able to find work right here in Sydney thanks, METI.
I just received a call from Kewit (scaffolding). Thank you, everyone at M.E.T.I.!
