TRU launches new program for basic trades skills – TRU Newsroom

Thompson Rivers University is launching a new Trades Assistant Program for students with diverse abilities needing additional supports who are interested in working in construction, warehousing or landscaping.

The 32-week program starts in February and combines classroom, lab and practical experience on and off campus. Students are provided with hands-on, project-based and experiential learning opportunities, said Jane Horton, project manager for the Trades Assistant Program.

“It has a six-week, off-campus practicum that provides work experience for students and hands-on, practical experience on campus or in the community throughout the program,” she said.

ESTR now offers four areas of certification through Adult Special Education: trades assistant, food service assistant, retail/hospitality assistant and career exploration. Programs have limited intakes so it’s best to apply early in 2020. There are still spaces available in the Trades Assistant Program and new applicants are welcome.

Interested applicants should apply to TRU immediately. They can get information here (please note ESTR is a certificate program): https://www.tru.ca/programs/catalogue/education-and-skills-training-certificate.html

Or they can get more personal information by calling program advisers Marsha Stewart or Harman Grewal at 250-371-5593.

This new program was made possible through a grant from the Ministry for Advanced Education, Skills and Training and a private donation.

For interviews (until Jan. 20), contact:
Jane Horton, TRU ESTR Program Project Manager
