Are you considering a career in the trades? Between study at the college and actual work placements, pre-apprenticeship programs develop your job skills and trade readiness. They take up to 40 weeks and include: the Level 1 apprenticeship in-school training, relevant safety training and a minimum 8-week work placement.
