Currently in Canada, the demand for skilled tradespeople, including electricians, welders, mechanics, carpenters, and pipefitters, has never been higher. Training in a trade can open the path to an exciting and well-paid career.
But how do you decide which trade is for you?
UFV’s ten-week trades discovery program is a special opportunity for you to sample multiple trades to help you decide which one you’d like to pursue as a career.
It is ideal for students, young adults, or women wishing to learn practical skills, gain general employment certifications, and explore trades career opportunities.
As a program participant, you get to learn on top-of-the-line equipment and tools in UFV’s spacious Trades and Technology Centre, under the supervision of an experienced instructor.
Classes run Monday to Friday, 9am - 3:30pm
Registration begins December and is on a first come/first served registration system. There is no application or entrance exam required.
You explore a variety of trades and acquire basic skills that will prove fundamental if you decide to become a trades person.
