Danatec by We Know Training and Global Training Centre are pleased to launch a new approved supervisory-level online Ground Disturbance training course for British Columbia (BC) as an addition to our online Ground Disturbance Program.
Our online Ground Disturbance Program consists of our Ground Disturbance Level I® course and Ground Disturbance Level II® supervisory-level course as a base. The supervisory-level course was previously only approved in Alberta by the Alberta Common Ground Alliance (ABCGA). However, we’re happy to be able to expand our offering to include the jurisdictional requirements of BC.
Ground Disturbance Level II® – British Columbia meets the requirements of the BC Common Ground Alliance 201 Standard and is endorsed by the BC Common Ground Alliance (BCCGA). Danatec and Global Training Centre are currently the only two providers that offer approved Ground Disturbance training in BC for all modes of delivery (classroom and online).
Global Training Centre has been a trusted Canadian brand since 1982. Global and Danatec have benefited from a strong brand partnership spanning many years. Thanks to Global Training Centre’s knowledgeable subject matter experts and our excellent team of instructional designers, we were able to mold the content of Global’s successful Ground Disturbance Level II® classroom-based program into an approved online program.
“The intent isn’t to shift to online learning, it’s about learning transfer,” says Debbie Shelley, CEO and Director of Training at Global Training Centre. “Some learners function more effectively, learn better, and retain knowledge transfer longer when in a ‘one on one’ environment. [The online] environment allows them to learn when they want, where they want, to repeat as they want, until they have confidence in their knowledge,” Shelley continues. “[Since] every individual is different, the Ground Disturbance Level II® product line is available in both Instructor-Led Training options—classroom-based and online, in multiple jurisdictions.”
The program focuses on educating learners and ensuring they fully understand the best practices and regulations surrounding ground disturbance.
“We’re proud to have partnered with Global Training Centre to bring this course online,” says Tiffany Linke-Boyko, President of We Know Training. “The fact that it’s online means that approved training is accessible to more people, which is great to think that more people will be able to get the training they need to stay safe,” Linke-Boyko continues. “In these times, so many businesses are looking for new ways to train employees safely, and we’re happy to provide those opportunities.”
The Ground Disturbance Level II® course immerses learners with a fully interactive practical scenario where the learner takes the role of a ground disturbance supervisor. This scenario allows the learner to make critical decisions and experience the outcome of those decisions in a digital environment. The program also includes a variety of other resources and interactive learning scenarios to engage and educate the learner.
Learners can expect an engaging array of high–quality 3D graphics in animated scenarios, interactive learning exercises, and more as they navigate through the course.
