In 2001-2002, the Alberta Apprenticeship and Industry Training Board continued its collaboration with industry, government, and educators to maintain high standards of training and improve access to technical training. The board continued to strengthen the network of local and provincial apprenticeship committees, occupational committees, and other industry committees, and it held a workshop to discuss current issues facing the network and identify ways of enhancing it over the next 2 years. The board also focused on rewarding individuals and employers who have contributed to making Alberta's apprenticeship and industry training system a success, and it established a perpetual scholarship program. Other major activities of the board in 2001-2002 were as follows: (1) it introduced the new designated occupation of steel detailer; (2) it improved communication with apprentices and other participants in the system; (3) it contributed to interprovincial labor mobility; (4) it designed initiatives to increase the participation of Aboriginal peoples in apprenticeship; (5) it considered the designation of new trades and occupations; and (6) it promoted apprenticeship and industry training. (The following items are appended: (1) the board's mandate, vision, mission, principles, and membership; (2) lists of recipients of board awards and scholarships; and (3) 14 tables/charts of statistics on Alberta's apprenticeship and industry training system.)
