Trades & Apprenticeship

We offer skilled trades programs in many fields essential to the province.

These programs align with the knowledge and skills industry look for, so the demand for our students is high. Concepts learned in the classroom are reinforced by lab and shop activities so students can hit the ground running in rewarding careers.

With NAIT's hands-on training and support, apprentice Megan Malloy is pursuing a big career in the trades. For her, no challenge is too high or too heavy.
