Trade Skills

All trade skills programs

Trade skills programs are programs which give you certificates and diplomas, rather than degrees, with which you can secure a specific job or jobs in a particular industry. Rather than acquiring intangible skills such as leadership and critical thinking, you will learn skills that you can demonstrate in a specific workplace. For example, the Culinary Arts program teaches you various cooking techniques so that you can prepare meals in a restaurant either as a chef, a cook or a kitchen helper, while the Construction Trades program teaches you the various skills needed in construction, such as carpentry, bricklaying and house painting.
