Our students learn their craft under the guidance of tradespeople with extensive industry experience and knowledge, complemented by unprecedented access to a suite of wraparound supports to help them succeed along their educational journey.
With an emphasis on safety, our schools ensure apprentices continually advance in both their practical and classroom learning so that they ultimately acquire the skills and competencies needed to earn their Red Seal qualification. And with a Red Seal – the four-year equivalent of a bachelor’s degree – our students earn top wages and have the flexibility to work within their trade anywhere in Canada.
