Training Partnership to Build Capacity in Rural Municipalities

The Saskatchewan Association of Rural Municipalities (SARM) and Southeast College are pleased to be partnering to offer management level training courses to employees of Rural Municipalities (RM) starting in January 2017.

The courses being offered to RM Administrators and Foreman include topics such as time management, organizational skills, communicating effectively, conflict management, safety planning and general leadership skills.   Courses will be offered in conjunction with SARM Conventions and regionally to make them accessible to those living in rural areas.

“Employees working in our RMs are being called upon to build capacity in themselves to meet the demands of growth, legislation and to adopt new practices to create efficiencies, says SARM President Ray Orb.   We are excited to work with an organization as professional as the Southeast College and are proud of our commitment to make these capacity building resources readily available to RM employees.”

“This is a tremendous opportunity and our College is honored to partner with SARM to develop and implement this municipal training program across rural Saskatchewan, says Southeast College President and CEO Dion McGrath. “We will be working with all College’s across the province to ensure responsive, timely and cost-effective delivery of this program.”

Southeast College is proud to be the Trainer of Choice in Southeast Saskatchewan, serving approximately 8,000 learners and producing over 5,000 graduates annually.
