New trades school in Saint John

January 13, 2009

Eastern Trades College, a division of CompuCollege, opened its doors on Monday in Saint John. The private trades school launched with over 70 students in electrical, plumbing, and pipefitting programs. The manager of CompuCollege's trades training division says it is the right time to open such a school because of growing demand for trades training and full capacity at New Brunswick Community College. With the new college, the manager questions the need for a $45-million expansion of NBCC. Saint John Telegraph-Journal
