Training on site
NAIT has been offering outreach programs to Aboriginal communities since 1999 by increasing access to our programs on-site, at NAIT campuses and by using special mobile education units called NIMs (NAIT In Motion). This capacity allows aboriginal students across Canada to access our training programs without the need to relocate to urban centers. The mobile units allow us to deliver customized training programs directly to your community in state-of-the-art facilities that drive right up to your front door.
NAIT in Motion - Mobile Education Units
NAIT in Motion was recently recognized by the Association of Canadian Community Colleges (ACCC) with a Gold Program Excellence Award for this innovative mobile education program.
