Okanagan launches sponsored Construction Craft Worker program


Okanagan College has launched a fully funded Construction Craft Worker program. The 10-week program will be delivered at Okanagan’s Salmon Arm Trades Centre and will teach students about topics including job site preparation and cleaning, masonry, site security, and operating equipment. Students who meet certain criteria will be provided with free tuition, tools, and meal and transportation supports. “We are continually looking to collaborate with industry partners to respond in areas where the communities in our region have real needs in the workforce,” said Okanagan President Neil Fassina. “This new program in Salmon Arm shows how working together with partners and decision-makers supports people who are looking for more training to help them advance in their careers.”
