The investment will reportedly fund 1,588 seats in a number of trades that include electrician, welder, cook, heavy mechanical group trades, and carpenter. “Our trades programs are a first stop for many employers when they are searching for highly-skilled, job-ready graduates and apprentices, and today’s announcement allows us to build on that reputation,” said TRU Interim Dean of Trades and Technology Baldev Pooni.
