THRC Training Program Receives ASTD Recognition

“Textile Training Through Technology: Textile Manufacturing Basics,” developed on behalf of the Canadian textile and apparel industry by the Canada-based Textiles Human Resources Council (THRC), has been recognized by the American Society of Training & Development (ASTD), Alexandria, Va., for excellence in workplace learning and development.

THRC developed the computer-based training program in partnership with Canadian textile manufacturer Hafner Inc. and with collaboration from more than 30 other textile organizations. The first in a series of such programs, “Textile Manufacturing Basics” is geared to non-technical textile workers, suppliers, schools and related organizations. It is currently being used in Canada and in 28 countries worldwide.
