Humber College Pathways To The Skilled Trades
- Skilled Trades
Pathways to the Trades is a FREE 8-week program targeting clients who are currently unemployed, interested in exploring the trades, and are experiencing financial hardship. This specialized program has been designed to help you make a successful transition into the trades, whether you have completed high school or not. This will be achieved through a strong focus on developing individualized learning plans, advising, career exploration and skill building.
The program includes 30 hours of training per week including 15 hours of trades exposure relevant to the specific pathway chosen, 6 hours of academic upgrading, and 2 hours of employment prep. You will also complete safety training and other relevant certifications including First Aid and Working at Heights. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to participate in possible facility tours, hear from people already in the trade, and participate in workshops discussing pathways, emotional intelligence, the apprenticeship process, funding your education, time management, budgeting, and other relevant topics.
