About Trades Training BC

Trades Training BC is a consortium of 15 public post-secondary educational institutions created to promote trades training in British Columbia. Trades Training BC's primary function is to encourage students and others considering career retraining to explore trades as a viable career option. Additionally, Trades Training BC acts as an advocate for the member institutions in their communication with the public, government, businesses and other stakeholders. The consortium adheres to BC Taxpayer Accountability Principles.

TradesTrainingBC.ca is a portal created by the consortium to provide current trades training schedules while directing students and employers to Apprenticeship, Foundation, Technical, and Youth programs offered at the member institutions throughout BC. Program sessions are listed chronologically by level (if appropriate) within various BC regions. Each institution's program contains a mail icon that allows you to contact the trainer directly about a particular session. Note that program registration is handled on each institution's own website, not from this web site.
