Okanagan College is about to offer a new Construction Craft Worker program which will provide Red Seal accreditation for those working in the construction trade. Starting in March 2015 the two-level apprenticeship program will help to meet the provincial demand for the training.
The Okanagan College Students' Union has put its support towards the future of trades and of future students with a $100,000 pledge towards the Bright Horizons, Building for Skills fundraising campaign that supports the renovation and expansion of the trades training complex at Okanagan College.
