The Northern Alberta Institute of Technology, Southern Alberta Institute of Technology, and Portage College have expanded the number of available apprenticeship seats through new Alberta at Work funding. The Government of Alberta is investing $15M in the expansion over three years. The funding will create 300 new apprenticeship seats in areas such as plumbing and gasfitting that align with AB’s priority sectors, as well as increasing the available hands-on learning and mentorship opportunities. “Skilled tradespeople are integral to our province, our economy and our communities,” said NAIT Dean of the School of Skilled Trades Matt Lindberg. “This funding will allow more training opportunities provincewide, which in turn will produce more job-ready, skilled tradespeople who will contribute to the communities of Alberta and beyond.” AB| NAIT Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
