Build Your Skills!
During these uncertain economic times, it can be hard to choose a solid, long-term career path. Skilled tradespeople are relied on heavily for the various day to day functions of our lives, and will always be in demand to keep things running smoothly. You never have to worry about keeping up with the changing times, because we have the most up to date training to help you start and continue your career. Whether you currently have a job and need to gain new skills, or you're just starting out, we have what you need to succeed!
Apprenticeships are a win-win for both employers and students!
As an employer you gain an employee who will be fully trained with the skills you need, and who is already familiar with your company. We are a great choice among employers as students stay local, meaning there are less distractions during studies and less chance of losing them to larger companies within the "big city".
As an apprenticeship student, you combine on-the-job training with classroom time over a four-year period (varies by trade). You will spend 6-12 weeks each year at school, and the rest of the year training and earning a wage on the job, making this an excellent choice for those who want to continue working while going to school.
Do you have a passion for a certain trade, but don't know where to start? Maybe you're thinking of a new career, but want to make sure you will enjoy it, before taking the plunge. Or maybe you're just looking to gain some knowledge in an area you're interested in, but don't want it to become your career. If this sounds like you, taking a certificate in a trade with us can help you achieve your goals!
To earn a certificate from our institution, you don't have to have any pre-existing industry connections or skills - we'll give you the training and work experience you need to land your first job!
