CertWORK Plus provides national benchmark certifications for these personnel in manufacturing. 

B.C. Employer Training Grant (ETG)   The B.C. Employer Training Grant (ETG) provides up to $8 million in funding for employers to support skills training for their current and new employees in the fiscal year 2018/2019.
The goal of the ETG is to help unemployed and employed British Columbians access the skills training they need to adapt to the changing requirements of jobs and the labour market while encouraging employer involvement in training of their employees.
This program is designed to assist employers in providing skills training to new or current employees that will develop skills and certification, upgrade skills needed due to automation and enhance productivity.
For further information on eligibility requirements of the program see ETG criteria.

Training within Industry (TWI)

Give two employees the same task and chances are they'll each perform it slightly different. For companies who focus on repeating a process, these differences can be costly.

The need to standardize work in the most efficient way is the motivation behind Training Within Industry (TWI).
