Heavy equipment operator training in the Northwest Territories is somewhat limited due to the number educational resources available. Your best option would be to either contact a construction or mining company and ask them if they offer an apprenticeship or general laborer position. Tell them you would like to learn to become an operator and ask their advice on how to train to become one in their company.
