Gold Seal Certification is the highest standard for excellence in the management of construction. It is a nationally recognized certification for project managers, superintendents, estimators, foreman, construction safety coordinators and owner’s project managers.
Our lunch n’ learns and special topic seminars allow you to enhance your professional development and gain the practical training needed to enhance your career and align your skills directly with the needs of the commercial and industrial construction industry.
Virtually all Centre of Excellence courses are available across the province or internationally through our distance learning platform. According to our hundreds of distance participants it is “easy to use and makes you feel like being there”.
The NLCA has partnered with the CCA and BuildForce Canada to offer E-Learning courses that can be completed at any time. Upon successful completion, all of them also award valuable Gold Seal credits.
