Collection and Capture Training Delivery Note to
On July 19th, 2004, the Forestry Continuing Studies
Network (FCSN) announced that it is no longer providing
training related services in the resource information
At this time, the most prevalent model has the ad
hoc market presenting a demand on qualified trainers
to provide RISC approved training leading to government
certification of trainees.
In order for the province to provide for quality,
control and consistency in the data collection and
analysis involved in the inventory, the provincial
Resources and Information and Standards Committee (RISC)
has developed standards and procedures, specifications
and methodology for the various aspects of the inventory.
Trainers are invited to use Ministry training material
and conduct training courses to qualify individuals
for employment in the inventory initiative. The Ministry
will not pay for the training courses but the trainer
is permitted to recoup the costs of training through
fees charged for the training course.
Trainers will need to secure access to RISC training
materials and the approval of the appropriate data
custodians to meet this market demand. Trainers must
demonstrate to the data custodian that they are qualified
to train individuals.
To ensure that the rights and interests of the government
are protected, including copyright over the materials,
a template agreement has been developed (Training
Materials Use Agreement [pdf]). Custodians will
maintain records of individuals who have been certified
as successfully completing specific training.
Following receipt of an “Agreement to Use RISC
Training Materials Application,” custodians will
commence a process to issue the agreement if all relevant
conditions can be met.
