Apprentice Mentoring Best Practice
The Apprentice Mentoring Program (AMP) was developed by a group of industry stakeholders as a best practice of the Construction Owners Association of Alberta (COAA). It is provided to companies free of charge, and is intended to help improve the skills and knowledge of apprentices on a work site so they are more able to effectively contribute to a project’s success. The key benefits and potential cost savings associated with this program will arise from improvements in areas such as safety, teamwork, quantity and quality of work, attendance and turnover, scheduling, reduced rework, and usage of tools, equipment and materials. This best practice was developed in 2007 at the request of the COAA Workforce Development Committee.
