What is the purpose of the Information Session and Career Decision Making Workshop? Do I have to attend them? Is there a cost?

The Information Session gives you the opportunity to learn about our different programs, how the application processes works, and ask questions to a Student Engagement Advisor.

The Career Decision Making Workshop gives you decision-making tools to help you decide if a career in the trades is right for you, if this is the right time to make a change, and to help you identify any challenges that lay ahead.

Attend an Information Session first and stay for the Career Decision Making Workshop all on the same day!

There is no cost to attend the Information Session, the Career Decision Making Workshop or the on-line webinar.
