Local Administrator Contact
In addition to telephone calls and walk-in traffic, each administrator in a local area receives their own e-mail inquiries through Contact Us. One of the most important functions of the Local Administrator of our website is to link and refer individuals to appropriate community resources, training institutions, unions, associations, MTCU consultants, OYAP and School Board coop coordinators and others who play a vital role in preparing people for entry into the skilled trades.
Each Local Administrator manages the database in their own geographical area. Local Administrators are able to contact applicants and/or employers directly via bulk or individual e-mails to alert them to pre-apprenticeship programming starting in their communities, skilled trades awareness events, tours, open houses, trade-related career conferences or events.
Each Local Administrator profiles and promotes skilled trade events in their own communities, by exhibiting at trade shows or school/community events and career fairs, by advertising and promoting events on the website, or supplying promotional material for community partners to use.
