Train in Trades Program


Habitat for Humanity Sunshine Coast with Vancouver Island University and School District No 46

The Train in Trades program is the in-class component of a high school apprenticeship. Train in Trades students are Youth Apprentices registered with the Industry Training Authority (ITA).

Train in Trades programs are usually offered as partnerships between school districts and post-secondary institutions with onsite training at either location. Students who successfully complete the Train in Trades program earn credit towards both high school graduation and a post-secondary credential.

Enrolment in the Train in Trades program is free; however, students may be required to cover the cost for textbooks, tools or other items specific to working in a specific industry.
