Confederation, Trois-Rivières announce new programs for industry

Two colleges have launched programs as part of larger industry partnerships. Cégep de Trois-Rivières is offering an AEC program focused on industrial processes in green technology. The program follows a work-study model, in which students apply their learning directly in a company environment. Nouvelliste reports that the Government of Québec has invested nearly $600K into the program. Confederation College is working with CP Rail to relaunch its 12-week Railway Conductor Program, which follows Railway Alliance Canada standards and practices. Northern Ontario Business reports that the program was originally set to launch before the pandemic, but that it was delayed due to the need for hands-on training in small quarters.
