Ontario College Certificate | 2 semesters | Barrydowne
Want a career in a skilled trade or the engineering technology field but don't know which profession to pursue? Or are you missing an admission requirement or need to improve your grades for pre-requisite courses to gain admission into a full-time program? Cambrian's Pre-Trades/Technology program is a great first step to explore career options and to brush up on your math and science skills.
In this program, you'll learn the basic fundamentals of work safety, measuring instruments, and hand/power tools. Class projects, such as small engine repair, combined with practical courses in technology, math, English, and computers provide a strong foundation to pursue subsequent postsecondary programs.
Successful graduates are eligible to apply to a number of programs offered through Cambrian College's School of Skills Training and the Schools of Engineering Technology and Environmental Studies. The Pre-Trades/Technology program is the preferred designated preparatory program for admission to Cambrian College Trades and Technology programs.
Successful completion of the Pre-Trades/Technology program also provides students who have obtained their Ontario Secondary School Diploma, but lack key English and math prerequisites, to be eligible to apply to other Cambrian College programs that have these requirements.
- 1 year – 2 semesters
- Combination of theory and hands-on work in labs and trades shops
- Opportunity to shadow students in your program of interest
- A minimum of 10% of seats in Cambrian's Skills Training and Engineering Technology programs are reserved for Pre-Trades/Technology grads who meet admission requirements
This program may also be offered through the West Bay campus (program code PTWB). For further information, please contact Judy Proux at (705) 368-3194.
