It is designed to help with essential resources and support to develop trade-specific knowledge, job skills and work experience necessary to start a career in the skilled trades. The Ministry of Labour, Training and Skills Development is investing 20.8 million in pre-apprenticeship training across the province in 2020. St. Clair College is pleased to announce we have confirmation of the following programs.
