Special Notice to Contractors:

May, 2024 - Ontario Contractors ONLY

As a review of the Copper Cliff Mine Orientation Requirements, we have updated the North and South Orientation to a combined Orientation (Module ID 11 Tier 3 Copper Cliff Mine Complex (CCMC) Orientation. There is no longer a requirement to complete a separate orientation. We have also removed the Ramp Requirement. Employees will have to review the Traffic Management Plan with their Plant contact similar to other Plants.

If you have previously completed the North and South modules you will not have to redo the training until your current modules expire.


Important Notice: As we work towards implementing our Environmental Management System (ISO14001:2015 certification) a new mandatory training module has been created to support our certification – Supplemental Training: Environmental Management System Awareness Orientation – Course ID – 117”. This module is required to be completed along with your Tier and CAR training.

Welcome to Vale’s Learning & Development orientation portal.

Full access to all training modules anytime and anywhere.
