Become an Instructor with Iron & Earth

Oil workers have helped build Canada’s prosperity. It’s only fair we should help them hone new skills for the future. Become an instructor with Iron & Earth so that workers are ready to be part of the renewable energy economy. 

Apart from our work to bring a fair and equitable energy transition to the attention of politicians and policy makers, Iron & Earth believes in bringing about change through action. That includes bringing training and climate solutions to communities who are interested in developing solar or wind projects. 

To make that training possible we need experienced tradespeople to train workers in their own communities. People like Jason Courtepatte who was the lead instructor when we partnered with  Maskwacis Cultural College for a solar and wind turbine installation, or Devin Keats and Brett Ziter who helped five trainees install solar power generation systems in Nunatsiavut. Trainees like Shawn Hubbard learned a lot through our programs and are poised to take what they have learned and apply it to the renewable energy sector. 

We are ramping up our training and installation initiatives significantly this year and an important element is our network of instructors who have the skills to deliver our solar and wind energy-focused rapid upskilling programs across Canada. That means Iron & Earth needs more trainers and someone to train the trainers!

We are delivering our Train the Trainer program in April and May to grow our instructor network!

Participation in Train the Trainer and subsequent program instructor roles are paid contract positions and we are accepting applications from across Canada.

Iron & Earth is committed to partnering with Indigenous workers to empower their communities to become self-sufficient in training programs, clean energy transition projects, and employment opportunities to combat environmental racism. It falls to all of us to continue the work of healing and reconciliation in our communities and our organizations. Our relationship with the land and the people who live here shapes who we are. It is in the spirit of reconciliation and honouring the past that we recognize treaties and agreements wherever they are and wherever we work.

We also acknowledge all peoples who live, work, and play on this land, and who honour and celebrate this territory.
As individuals and teams we may make mistakes along the way, but we are dedicated to growth, openness, compassion, and forgiveness. These principles in our work are essential to building successful and healthy relationships with individuals, communities, organizations, and governments.

We look forward to building a path to lead us to a better relationship with Indigenous nations and the environment around us based on peace, friendship, and respect.
