The Trades and Technology division offers training programs that respond to industry needs. All UCFV trades programs are based on provincial standards, and follow a core curriculum common to all B.C. institutions offering the program.

Trades and Technology programs at UCFV include:

New programs (as of September, 2001:)

Our trades programs provide hands-on, job-focused technology training. You can be working in your chosen field after finishing a 10-month entry-level trades training program at UCFV. Most of our programs also have apprenticeship options after completion of the entry-level certificate. Some of these apprenticeship options are offered at UCFV.

We encourage men and women of all ages and backgrounds to consider a career in trades. Contact us at (604) 854-4548 for more information.

The Drafting program starts each September and continues into June. Applications are accepted beginning October 1, 2001, for the September 2002 class. Refer to the Drafting Technician certificate section for further application details.

Application for all trades programs except Drafting is made directly to the Trades and Technology department. All Trades programs, shops, and labs are located in the Trades and Technology Centre at the Abbotsford campus, which is open 7:30 am–3:30 pm, Monday–Friday. Classes and shops are in session 7:30 am–1:30 pm, Monday– Friday.

Career Technical Centre

The Career Technical Centre is a unique learning facility. It is operated by School District #34 (Abbotsford) with the joint sponsorship of the University College of the Fraser Valley. Senior secondary students combine their Grade 11 and 12 subjects with UCFV certificate programs. Graduates of the two-and-a-half year integrated program have the option of seeking direct employment in their field of technical specialty or continuing their studies at the second-year level at UCFV or another post-secondary institution.

Students who complete the program will receive their Ministry of Education certificate conferring secondary school graduation as well as a certificate for the first year of college studies from the University College of the Fraser Valley.
