Centuries of Leadership


We have over 8 centuries of line management leadership experience!


Centuries of Leadership is the leadership and human development arm of Canada Training Group International; Canada Training Group was formed on July 1st, 1980, serving the drilling and service rig industry.
Since then we have trained over 25,000 national and international students throughout North America and further in numerous industries: oil & gas (upstream, midstream, downstream), pipelines, pulp, paper, manufacturing, ports, shipping, army, navy, air force, coast guard, mills, mines, factories, municipalities, utilites, (hydro, nuclear, thermal, wind, solar), construction, data centers, hospitals, universities and many subsectors.
Centuries of Leadership has a Leadership Development Team of retired line managers providing practical leadership and management development from the C-Suite to first line leaders. Our faculty each have over 30 years of individual leadership experience and collectively they have over 800 years (8 Centuries!) of experience. No matter what your industry is, we can help you!
We have been providing Leadership training since 1985 beginning with a 3 day Safety Leadership program taught to 225 supervisors with the City of Calgary. In 2001 Nestlé International purchased the rights to our Supervisory Leadership program to teach as part of their Nestlé University which services their 354 factories in 79 countries. There have been many other programs with numerous stellar testimonials as you will see later in this brochure.
We are ISO 9001 Quality Managed and all courses are designed and presented to the standards of the International Board of Standards for Training, Performance and Instruction as well as the standards of The Institute for Performance and Learning, and the Association for Talent Development. Our curriculum design team has over 120 years of experience developing courses and curricula in industry, military, law enforcement, aviation, technical institutes and universities.
Centuries of Leadership achieves accelerated learning results through the integration of practical exercises, leadership performance labs, discussions, visuals, videos, case study analysis, handouts, etc. Our work is based on the pioneering human development work of Mager, Gilbert, Rummler, Kantor, Knowles, Harless, Bloom, Kolb, Kirkpatrick, Kaufman and others.
