Who We Are
SWS Training & Consulting Inc. is an established training and consulting firm, specializing in Heavy Equipment Operator Training, located in Southern MB. SWS was formed in 2004 as Safety with Shelly – CONSULTING SERVICES Ltd. The company went through a name change to streamline what we focus on: Training! We are now SWS Training & Consulting Inc.
We are what CRA designates as a DEI (Designated Educational Institute), which allows us to issue the T2202 Tuition and Enrolment Certificates (tax receipts) to students for the tuition portion of their training costs. This means that we are an accredited training facility as recognized by the federal government of Canada.
SWS is designated as a Private Vocational Institute (PVI) through Manitoba Economic Development and Training. Our program is accredited, current, relevant and recognized within industry – not only in MB but inter-provincially as well. Our instructors are registered and accredited. We are firm believers that your training program is only as good as your instructors teaching it. We stay connected to the heavy/civil construction industry for this reason. Our program focuses on what companies in this industry are looking for in their employees, thus allowing them to not only gain employment but to STAY employed. We proudly stand behind our slogan: Training FOR industry, FROM industry. Our program is second to none.
We regularly offer open intakes to our Heavy Equipment Operator Training Certification Program, and we also bring this training program to remote northern communities, employers, projects, etc in MB, SK, and ON. You can come to us, or we can come to you.
