Application for Designation and the Designation Review Process provide a quality assurance mechanism to ensure that training providers meet SkilledTradesBC's program standards for training facilities, instructor qualifications, course curriculum, assessment processes, trade competencies and general operations. 

SkilledTradesBC designation is trade, level, and location-specific.

Please consult PTIB to see if this applies to your institution.
