Series: Awareness Tools - HRSDC
Collection: Learning Materials
This fact sheet, part of a series prepared by Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC), can be used by an apprentice ironworker to learn how Essential Skills are used on the job; discover the skills needed to succeed in the trade; and prepare for a career.
The authors have provided examples of how each of the nine Essential Skills might be used on the job by an ironworker. For example, the skill of numeracy might be used to calculate distances and angles of structures for the accurate placement of materials, while continuous learning could involve attending training for mandatory recertification.
