What to Expect
The Communication Technician program follows the current Alberta Apprenticeship Course Outline (pdf) to ensure all students are provided with appropriate training experiences to successfully pass their apprenticeship examinations.
Classroom & Study Hours
Students can expect to spend, on average
- 30 hours per week in classrooms and labs
- 1 or 2 hours per night, depending on experience
Training is done in the HP Centre for Information and Communications Technology on NAIT's Main Campus in Edmonton.
Is This Program For You?
Communication technician work is most rewarding for those who enjoy learning new things and doing precise work that sometimes requires creativity. To be successful in their trade, communication technicians need
- mechanical ability
- analytical ability
- strong mathematical knowledge
- good communication skills
The School of Applied Sciences and Technology wants our first-year students to become confident in their abilities, get connected to NAIT through groups, peers and staff, be supported personally and academically, get motivated to complete their program and most importantly enjoy the learning environment here at NAIT.
Being an apprentice student is quite different from being a full-time student. Apprentices are in school for short periods of time and some programs are on satellite campuses. Our goal is to improve communication with apprentices on all campuses to ensure you have access to all the services we have to offer at NAIT for you to be successful.
