Both of these are taking place in Saskatoon. The number of hours they attend will count toward apprenticeship. Instruction will be offered face-to-face but the content (including handouts) will be online so participants will be able to review online.
They are offering these programs tuition free to these participants (seat fee may apply). The tuition for these programs, including books, is $8,000 – $10,000. Students attending the Applied Certificate programming, Intro to the Trades and Tour the Trades will need to come prepared with the required safety footwear.
