COVID-19 Information

The Mine Training Society (MTS) shares our community’s concern for the health, safety and well-being of our entire population. As required by regulations and conscience, MTS has suspended all in-person training programs.

MTS employees may still be reached via email at All telephone inquiries may be directed to our regular number: 888-765-0445.

In response to the conditions imposed by the Covid-19 crisis, immediate focus is on adapting our programs and offering training that can be delivered online using virtual classrooms with the first such program beginning in June, 2020. 

“We are doing everything in our power to minimize interruptions to our partners and students while maximizing our efforts to flatten the curve,” states General Manager Shari Caudron. “We will continue to provide excellent training and wrap-around services to NWT residents despite the challenges we are all facing.”

In accordance with the GNWT’s “Emerging Wisely – Path to Eased Public Health Restrictions” plan, in-person adult training programs are scheduled to resume in Phase III of the plan.  As soon as is permitted, MTS will resume all regular programming after we have conducted a thorough WSCC risk assessment and put in place all measures required to operate safely.
