Youth Train in 

Trades Program

SkilledTradesBC and the BC Ministry of Education and Child Care (ECC) teamed up to offer funding for students to complete their technical training while still in high school.  

Students can receive credits towards their high school diploma and at least one level of technical training by attending trades training classes at local high schools, post-secondary institutions, or SkilledTradesBC-certified training facilities.
