Trades Training

It can be hard to start your career in the trades if you don’t have the training and skills you need. Our Trades Training programs have been helping Calgarians build new careers in the trades for over 25 years.

In our free Pre-Apprenticeship Training Programs, you will upgrade your skills, get access to real on-site experience, and build important connections in the industry.
