Vancouver Community College (VCC) is pleased to announce the graduation of five members from the first cohort of its newly established Samsung Tech Institute.

VCC president Dr. Peter Nunoda presented the grads with certificates in a special awards ceremony held on January 19, 2017 in the Samsung Tech Institute training facility at VCC’s Broadway campus.

All are now Samsung-certified appliance repair technicians, qualified to diagnose and service the latest Samsung microwaves, refrigerators, ranges, dishwashers, washers, and dryers. 

Five other participants have also completed VCC’s training component, but are currently in the process of earning the provincial gas fitting certificates required as prerequisites by the program.
