As the economy grows, NAC offers trades training programs that will lead to good jobs in Nunavut. To qualify for these jobs, graduates must be well trained in their program specialty, as well as be prepared to serve an apprenticeship.

 

NAC offers several entry pathways for people with or without a high school diploma. The Trades Access Program in Iqaluit, for example, offers basic academic upgrading that provides students with the skills and confidence to challenge the Trades Entrance Exams.

Pre Trades is offered in various communities including the Sanatuliqsarvik Centre in Rankin Inlet. Skills learned in this program prepare individuals academically to challenge the Trades Entrance Exams for entry into an apprenticeship program.

The Pre Apprentice training further prepares students to enter the apprenticeship system, developing their job skills and trade readiness so they are qualified to work as Level 1 apprentices. The following Pre-apprenticeship Programs are available at Sanatuliqsarvik Centre for 2016-17:

  • Pre Apprenticeship Cook (New)
  • Pre Apprenticeship House Maintainer
  • Pre Apprenticeship Plumber Gas Fitter
  • Pre Apprenticeship Electrician

Deadline is June 15, 2016. Information: www.arcticcollege.ca/en/apprenticeship-trades-tech-news. Contact: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. , or telephone (867) 645-8850.
