CRTP PROPOSAL FOR A HUB-MODEL CONCEPT
  • Current Status of CRTP
    • Since April 2007, CRTP, hands-on, is being delivered by two OFNTSC employees, N. Paul and A. Armstrong
    • The OFNTSC Executive Board has requested a proposal to deliver CRTP to all First Nations.
    • After reviewing several options, the Executive Board members have requested a proposal following a hub-model concept to deliver CRTP to all First Nations.
    • This proposal is meant to address the CRTP needs with hands-on approach and on-site repairs by the trainers following a hub-model approach in future possibly 2008.
    • This proposal once approved by the Board and INAC for funding will be implemented for all First Nations.
    • A separate proposal is being developed for one year and is proposed to implement in the near future.
    • Advertisement has been placed for hiring First Nation trainers as requested by the Executive Board.

CRTP PROPOSAL FOR A HUB-MODEL CONCEPT
  • Highlights of the Hub-Model Based Proposal
    • A proposal for CRTP delivery using a hub-model concept was submitted to Executive Committee. They requested some modifications. These are being made.
    • The OFNTSC Board provided approval for liability insurance so that trainers could assist plant operators in carrying out repairs during the trainer’s visit.
    • Any specialized repair works will be contracted out.
    • On approval of the Board, OFNTSC will submit the proposal to INAC.

CRTP PROPOSAL FOR A HUB-MODEL
  • Highlights of the Hub Based Proposal
    • The proposal allows for expanding CRTP to all First Nations in Ontario
    • It proposes having a trainer at each Tribal Council to deliver the training to their First Nations. In some instances nearby Large First Nations will also receive CRTP training through a Tribal Council.
    • OFNTSC will directly deliver CRTP training to 21 Unaffiliated First Nations and three Large First Nations (Mohawks of Akwesasne, Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte and Six Nations).
    • The CRTP training will include “hands-on” training using the OETC approved training manual.
    • Operators will receive CEUs.
    • The proposal identifies the need for 19 trainers including 15 working from the Tribal Council offices.

  • Highlights of the Hub Based Proposal
    • The proposal includes an emergency repair fund that will allow trainers to undertake emergency repairs. This should help with the reduction of BWA’s.
    • The “hands-on” training records will be used by the plant operators in their submission for license renewals as required by OETC in addition to specialized class room training records.

  • Challenges for CRTP:
    • Due to the high demand for qualified operators, it is difficult to recruit and retain experienced and certified trainers.
    • Salaries for trainers has gone up and as a result funding agency should consider increased funding levels for CRTP.
    • Other training providers are forming partnerships to provide SWOP based services. Some question the need for CRTP in these First Nations
    • Travel costs by the trainers in the north is expensive.
    • Travel is influenced by weather, especially during winter, thereby adding to costs.
    • Trainers are usually not certified trades people. As a result trades related activities should not be undertaken by the trainers.

  • Summary
    • CRTP still has a role to play in the delivery of safe potable water in First Nations
    • Funding needs to be increased and new delivery concept is being developed.
    • OFNTSC is preparing for INAC consideration, a proposal that assists all First Nations through their Tribal Council and OFNTSC.
    • First Nations are grouped into “hubs” for service delivery.
