NIC offers new Carpentry Foundation Harmonized certificate

November 5, 2020
North Island College has announced the expansion of their carpentry foundation program through the launch of a Carpentry Foundation Harmonized certificate at the college’s Campbell River campus. Students in the program will achieve level 1 technical training and complete work-based training hours. They will earn a variety of carpentry skills, preparing them to enter the industry as apprentice carpenters or to continue their training to achieve apprenticeship levels 2-4. “Construction trades continue to be in high demand,” said Cheryl O’Connell, NIC Dean of Trades & Technical Training. “This new offering means double the number of students will be able to take the program and students in the Campbell River area will be able to learn in shop space closer to home.” NIC (BC)
