Hands On Training for Most Job Specifications
Student (Former Employee) –  Innisfail, AB27 February 2017
IHE is a HEO school that applies hands on fundamental training on actual machines (no simulators) to students for what they will encounter in the workplace from mining to construction. All students were marked on their understanding of instructions and the completion of tasks from everything from trenching, sloping and material management to deep basement excavations, hauling, dumping and loading.
Pros
Evenly Paced with Classroom Time
Cons
More hours required on some machines

Management above site super is inept.
JourneymanHET (Current Employee) –  Innisfail, AB19 November 2016
From the top down this organization is disgustingly cheap and poorly managed. They are no where near the level similar businesses are at or the type of businesses the students will be going to. From an employee's perspective, it is demoralizing everyday. As a mechanic, it is neither set up for field techs or shop techs. Work is done in a tarp shelter with a sea-can. They added a heater last winter, finally. getting the necessary tools for what they are asking us to is impossible most times. Jobs that need to be done in heated spaces with overhead cranes are attempted here in a tent. Getting rig mats to safely put an Articulating rock truck on jack stands was a big deal.The safety practices are nearly non-existent. No SOPs for anything. Environmental precautions barely exist. In fact when they are mentioned, they are ignored.
Pros
Location, off at 3pm
Cons
Poorly managed, employee's not respected

Outstanding training environment
Heavy Equipment Operator Trainee (Former Employee) –  Innisfail, AB23 January 2014
Excellent instructor and supervisory staff ensure that every student becomes confident on all equipment, while providing back-up knowledge regarding many construction site elements such as surveyor techniques, grade stakes, and mechanical knowledge.
I leave IHE knowing I am a fully capable operator that can exceed an employers expectations of a new operator.
