We are pleased announce the opening of a second SafeCare BC Satellite Training Centre at Parksville’s Arrowsmith Lodge. The first Satellite Training Centre opened earlier this year at Abbotsford’s Menno Place.These partnership agreements will expand the capacity for health and safety training, and increase access.

“We are very excited to partner with member sites across the province, so more training can be delivered locally,” says Saleema Dhalla, acting CEO, SafeCare BC. “Both Menno Place and Arrowsmith Lodge have shown great leadership in the development of these satellite training centres.
