Stampede Crane Supports New Crane Supporting Program at SAIT

Groundbreaking ceremony at SAIT

The new crane supporting program will only focus on training of students

Our sister company, Stampede training regiment, recently partnered with SAIT (Southern Alberta Institute of Technology) College to build a crane academy for their students. We are excited to provide both the prints to erect the facility as well as support with supplying cranes when the facility becomes operational.

Whenever companies get the opportunity to share in the education of crane operators, we are all very excited. This is that type of opportunity.

SAIT Grand Opening


The groundbreaking ceremony of the crane supporting program took place at the new SAIT Campus, which is located in South East Calgary. The new facility at the campus will provide training to the students so that they are equipped with all the necessary tools required for having a career in the construction industry. Politicians, SAIT representatives and CTV news were on the site.

The building that is going to be erected at this site is going to be strictly designated to the crane and hoisting training program. The customized training facility will be constructed on an eight-acre lot at 10490-72 St. SE, Calgary. When completed in the fall of 2017, the facility will house world-class applied learning labs for Crane and Hoisting Equipment Operator Apprenticeship and Iron Worker Apprenticeship programs.

Construction is now underway and will employ hundreds of workers start to finish. Alberta Advanced Education is providing $5 million in operating funding for the facility.

“This government is proud to support our post-secondary institutions, because we know good jobs begin with a good education. This new facility will provide innovative training opportunities to prepare Albertans for success as we build on traditional economic drivers and move towards a more diverse economy,” said Marlin Schmidt, Minister of Advanced Education.
