VAFCS' Bladerunners program is an excellent opportunity for those between the ages of 19 and 30, living in Vancouver, and looking for a high-paying job in the construction industry. The program offers two weeks of basic safety training that includes First Aid, WHMIS, and Fall Protection, among other things. During the training period, participants are provided with a hot breakfast and lunch each day. After completing the training, the program provides participants with work gear and tools and then helps them find a job in the construction industry.
The program's staff includes three job coaches who are available to assist participants from the time they enter the program until they no longer need support. The Bladerunners program is committed to supporting its participants even after they complete the training and find a job. Participants can always return to the program for assistance and support, making the program's motto "Once a BladeRunner, Always a BladeRunner."
