Assiniboine Community College is proud to announce a partnership with Conestoga College (Ontario) to deliver a tuition-free welding program at its North Hill Campus in Brandon commencing in August 2020.
The program, funded through the Government of Canada Skilled Trades Awareness Readiness (STAR) program prepares students for in-demand careers while providing a head start for those wishing to work towards a Red Seal in the apprenticeship certification process.
Selection into the eight-month program will focus on engaging key groups including women, Indigenous peoples, newcomers to Canada, persons with disabilities and those currently underemployed.
Capacity for the program is fifteen students. Tuition, textbooks, and personal protective equipment are all covered at no cost to students in the program.
The program includes an eight-week paid work placement offering students pathways into the labour market upon graduation.
Interested candidates must attend a mandatory free program information session as part of their admissions process into the program.
