All NIC training programs follow the criteria set by SkilledTradesBC to ensure your trade qualifications meet current industry standards. From foundation through apprenticeship levels, NIC’s expert faculty will guide you on your journey to your Red Seal.

Youth Train in Trades is a SkilledTradesBC approved youth program which allows students to earn high school graduation credits, foundation trades (pre-apprentice) credentials and workplace hours required for trade certification while still in high school.
The student-to-instructor ratio is low, so you get a lot of hands-on time and time to ask questions and really delve into the materials. I would definitely recommend coming to NIC.
