The Dexter Institute delivers world-class educational programs in the areas of safety, equipment, operational/technical skills, leadership, management and professional development. Thanks to a wealth of industry experience built over the past several decades, the Dexter Institute provides training courses that meet or exceed current legislative standards and industry best practices.

We currently offer programs based in Nova Scotia and Labrador, with services available internally (to divisions within the Municipal Group of Companies) and externally (to companies seeking training for their respective workforces). Thanks to the expertise of our staff — many bring years of first-hand experience in mining/construction as well as education — students will get the "best of both worlds" as we bridge the gap between academic learning and practical training.
