Chad Johnston – Nov 2018:

Pre-Employment Scaffold Program

Jolene MacNeil – June 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!

Liam MacNeil – July 2018:

I’d like to thank everyone at METI for the great SAIA Pre-Employment program. Got a job with Redi-Energy on Suncor’s Fort Hills site before the course was even over!

Awesome program, everything we learned in class is being applied daily. Special thanks to Gerard Jessome for being a great instructor and helping me get a job.

Pre-Employment Scaffold Program

Elmer Haan  – Sept 2017: 

Program Manager

METI has been providing excellent service, and reliable training for CLAC for many years. Their diverse course offerings, from ESC 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. Brian Carrier reviewed METI Maritime Environmental Training Institute — 5 star May 11, 2018. I attended METI's courses and I am very satisfied with the training they gave me. I would like to thank my instructor Gerard Jessome providing me with quality training. I am now a 3rd year scaffolder soon to be journeyman.

METI has been with me every step of the way and has been instrumental in my success. Within 2 months of completing the program, I had found employment. Since then, I have had the opportunity to work for Quinn Construction at 28$ per hour. Then I worked for PCL as a second year for 36$ per hour. Then I became third year with a salary of 38,75$ per hour. I am now working for AEcom with an hourly rate of 36$. The drop-in wage aside, with my overtime hours, my income has remained the same.

Thanks to METI, I went from having a job to having a career I am proud of.

Project Coordinator
Panels and Pipes Mechanical Services

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.

Pre-Employment Scaffold Program

Keith MacIntyre

This program is hands down the best in the industry. The
training I received prepared me for just about every situation I ran into when I began working in the oil and gas industry in Alberta. I could answer questions without hesitation, and put my words into action. I worked from an entry level safety watch position to a team lead position in my first year, by the end of my third year in the oil patch I was an HSEQ Manager overseeing several sites.

Environmental Health Safety Technician

Leigh Blinkhorn – June 2017:

When I graduated from the EHST program in 2011, I immediately started work as a Health and Safety Advisor with Commissioning Group. From there, I worked with Kentz, MMR, and KFFT.

My employers were so impressed with the caliber of my training and the working knowledge that I possessed, that they funded further training for me (Tap Root investigation, etc.). I couldn’t ask for a better group of people to teach this program. Their support continued long after I left METI.

Donna Lea Kehoe – Jan 2018:

In 2015 I had no job, no prospects and not very much self confidence, when I was told about METIs environmental tech. course by Jean Chisholm of Nova Scotia Works. I graduated in July 2015 with alot of tickets but no real idea of what to do with what I had. After many closed doors METI invited me to a job fair for Sulzer Chemtech. After working for them for the last 2 years, I got married in April, I just bought my very first new car and I hope to be in my own home sometime in the not to distant future. I loved my experience at METI & I love my job with Sulzer.

Thanks for the opportunity!

Jay Budd – July 2018:

After fulfilling my Environmental Health and Safety Technicians Diploma in
February, I was recently hired on in Saint John, NB with a contracted company, working at the Irving Oil Refinery as a Safety Coordinator! They were very impressed with the number of courses I graduated with. They give you the hands- on experience and plenty of courses you need to get to where ever it is you may want to be! So grateful to have taken this course and highly recommend it to anyone who would like to get into the Safety field!!

Thank you METI
