BC’s mining industry has 120 careers; if you want to work in an industry that values and recognizes all your skills, including emerging technical and aptitude skills, there is a career for you.
By working with industry, training providers, Indigenous groups, and communities, CTEM identifies pathways for job seekers to gain in-demand skills and training that will lead them towards rewarding and long-term careers.
Have technical skills and a can-do attitude, there is a job for you in the mining industry. Technical and aptitude skills are in high-demand by employers, as the industry continues to evolve. For example, mining operations are increasingly using autonomous technologies and artificial intelligence (AI), which has created the need for the current workforce to gain new technical skills, and to attract new workers with these skills.

- Data analytics
- GIS mapping
CTEM supports collaborative and innovative training for BC’s mining industry. As an example, CTEM created a training pathway for the underground miner occupation after its labour market research determined there was a gap in a provincial training standard. As a result, CTEM launched BC’s underground miner training program that is being piloted in remote, rural and urban locations across the province.
Throughout this project, CTEM created a training pathway that illustrates the process for developing innovative training programs.
