NAIT to officially open Heavy Equipment Technology Building
NAIT will officially open its recently-acquired and renovated building for Heavy Equipment Technology. This building, combined with other renovated space, will help meet the need for skilled heavy equipment technicians in Alberta.
Heavy equipment technicians maintain, repair and overhaul heavy vehicles and industrial equipment. Demand for these technicians comes from the construction, mining, forestry, agriculture, material handling, landscaping and transportation industries. The building was formerly a hanger, adjacent to the now decommissioned City Centre Airport.
A photo op will include officials using a piece of heavy equipment to break through a ribbon, declaring the building officially open. There will be tours and interview opportunities for media.
