NVIT receives funding to bring healthcare, technology programs to rural and remote communities

Nicola Valley Institute of Technology has received $3.4M from the Government of British Columbia to purchase mobile training units and bring culturally relevant and responsive training programs to rural and remote Indigenous communities. The units will be used to deliver NVIT’s Health Care Assistant, Access to Practical Nursing, and Foundations in Innovation and Technology programs and will feature simulators, beds, computer workstations, multi-media equipment, and more. “Some of our people are stuck in isolated living situations where they want to learn and they want to build careers but they can’t leave home,” stated Lower Nicola Indian Band Chief Kukpi7 Stuart Jackson. “Now with these mobile learning centres we’re going to bring learning to the communities.” BC| Castanet| CFJC Today Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
