Are you interested in the trades but aren`t sure which area you’re passionate about? If so, there’s no need to stress! The Pre-Trades and Technology program allows you to sample different skills and backgrounds while giving you a solid foundational year in trades and technology – in just one year.
This program lets you explore different career options and decide where the real you belongs. Get exposed to interesting and in-demand trades, including:
- Machine shop
The Pre-trades and Technology program is also used by students with an interest in skilled trades and technology but lacks the necessary pre-requisites to pursue a career path.
Ontario will face a shortage of about 100,000 skilled trade workers in the manufacturing and building sectors over the next 15 years. You are in-demand and on the right track to starting a career that was meant for you!
