Nupqu Delivers Environmental Training to Provide Value to Clients

Nupqu Addressing Growing Wildfire Threat
June 12, 2018

Nupqu’s is responding to customer demand for environmental services. Spring 2018 Nupqu worked with the Ktunaxa Nation Education and Employment Sector to deliver a three-week Environmental Field Skills Course. Delivered in partnership with local expert consultants, the course put seven community members through a variety of field based training modules including: water quality monitoring, navigation, plant/vegetation identification, fish capture, aquatic invertebrate sampling, soil surveys, Ktunaxa traditional knowledge and electrofishing certification. This course compliments ongoing internal training, such as snowmobiles and off-HW utility vehicles operation, as well as swift water rescue to ensure employees are ready to work on sites with specific safety and training requirements.
