About PTP ASEP Training Society
The PTP ASEP Training Society (“PTP ASEP”) is a not-for-profit aboriginal organization registered under the Society Act (British Columbia) and has been in operation since January 2010.

In collaboration with PTP and Kitimat LNG, a key focus for PTP ASEP has been to match client training and skills development to the precise occupational profile and labor force needs of the two LNG projects and more generally the Energy Industry.
