How do I get my first line supervisor's certificate?

Step 1

Contact the Yukon Mine Training Association (YMTA) at (867) 633-6463, or email them at info@ymta.org to register for the online course.

Step 2

Successfully complete the on-line course, obtain your Certificate of Completion, and print off the Performance Demonstration Checklist.

Step 3

Give your Certificate of Completion to your employer, who will issue your provisional (temporary) First Line Supervisor status and also advise OH&S that you have been issued provisional status and will begin completion of the Checklist requirements on a specified date.

Step 4

Carry out your supervisory duties on-the-job for up to six months.

Step 5

At any time during this six month period, you and your employer can complete the Performance Demonstration Checklist. Once this is done, send YWCHSB the following documentation for review and approval:

  1. A completed application form signed by the mine manager;
  2. The completed Performance Demonstration Checklist;
  3. A copy of the Certificate of Completion; and
  4. A copy of the applicant’s valid First Aid certificate with CPR.

Step 6

Once approved, you will be entitled to take a final on-line examination at YMTA to obtain a Permanent First Line Supervisor’s Certificate. The final exam is not “open book” and you must obtain 80% to pass. Once you have successfully completed this exam, a permanent certificate will be issued by YWCHSB and a photo will be taken of you to be included on an identification card.
