In an effort to enhance the quality, competitiveness, and professional development of Canada’s social and energy infrastructure, DMF Energy Inc, has signed a memorandum of understanding in agreement with the Health, Education and Counselling Institute (HECOIN) of Jamaica to develop and introduce a new 36 month pilot project program. The program is designed for professionals, mature students and youth seeking knowledge and employment opportunities in the fast modernizing global energy sector.
It is anticipated that 150 participants will be enrolled between Winter 2018 – Fall 2019. The key objectives and goals are to increase mental health and cross cultural awareness for Canadian and Jamaican youth, enhance skill development in relation to new emerging technology trends and to create employment opportunities within Canada, Jamaica and other international markets for program participants. Administered by the Canadian Human Capital Development Initiative the curriculum will focus on several key areas of interest including: international business development, modern political relations, solar engineering, environmental assessments and Canadian Red Seal Endorsement pathways for construction and service related trades.

Solar energy conservation is a priority for many governments and this training collaboration will further bring savings in the coffers of governments that take energy security seriously. Both Jamaica and Canada have made significant strides in the area of renewable energy which is commendable.”
