History of Omnia Training
Mark Beck, the founder of Omnia Training, dropped out of high school in grade 9. Feeling like he could never grasp what was being taught to him at a desk in school, Mark discovered early on that he is a hands-on learner. Having recently dropped out, and being uncertain about his future, Mark sought an employer who would see his potential and be a good fit. When he finally landed a job in the landscape industry, he was relieved to find that his employer understood his learning style and taught him in a hands-on way that suited him best.
For the following 3 years, Mark learned everything he could from his mentor before striking out to start his own landscape company. Fast forward to 26 years later, Mark is the Director of 10 businesses and companies. His most recent venture is Omnia Training, a learning institute tailored to people who, like himself, learn differently. Mark’s story inspired the mission behind Omnia Training: to enhance the quality of life for all Canadians by mentoring and assisting them in breaking employment barriers so they secure and maintain meaningful employment. We achieve this mission by ensuring each student always has ample access to an instructor throughout their learning experience, and by assisting them with employment post-graduation. Mark truly believes that each student deserves the opportunity to achieve their full potential and is committed to assisting them with obtaining fulfilling careers. As experts who own businesses throughout various construction-based fields, we observed a clear desire from workers across Alberta to get their foot in the door in the industry. We saw an opportunity to provide a different approach to training and more importantly, to facilitate the hiring of successful candidates.
