B.C.’s Industry Training Authority is in the midst of a transformation that focuses on delivering skilled workers when and where they’re needed while giving industry a greater role in planning training programs, says its new chief executive officer.

“It’s really all about creating the right skills in the right place at the right time to ensure that B.C. has the necessary skills it needs going forward,” Gary Herman said Wednesday. He is bullish on the new two-year construction craft trade, B.C.’s 48th Red Seal trade, announced this month.
