NIC offers free Women in Construction Trades sessions

November 30, 2020

North Island College is launching free Women in Construction Trades sessions, which will give women an overview of the programs NIC offers and the opportunities graduates have for employment. Sessions, which will be offered in Campbell River, Comox Valley, Port Alberni, and Port Hardy, are one to two weeks long, and will be delivered in a blended format. The topics will vary by location, and may include welding, joinery, automotive, and carpentry. Students will have hands-on opportunities within NIC’s training shops. “These orientation sessions are designed for women who are interested in exploring the trades, seeking information on NIC’s trades training or considering a career change,” said Cheryl O’Connell, dean of Trades and Technical Programs at NIC.
