The Trades & 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 & Technology programs at UCFV include Aircraft Structures Technician, Architectural Drafting Technician, Auto Service Technician, Carpentry, Electronics Technician - Common Core, Heavy Duty/Commercial Transport Technician, Joinery, Professional Cook, and Welding C, B, A.

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.
