It’s Skilled Trades and Technology Week in Canada and at Vancouver Community College we know there are no tricks of the trade, just the right tools for the trades.
Trades and technology programs at VCC include baking and pastry arts, Asian culinary arts, professional cooking, hair design, esthetics, digital graphic design, drafting, transportation trades, and networking technology.
Here are just a few recent highlights of successes in VCC’s trades training areas:
“We’ve always known VCC offers high-quality training in relevant, in-demand vocations,” says Sandra Bailey, dean, transportation trades. VCC is widely recognized for its commitment to student success, Bailey explains, adding that that many employers look for talented VCC graduates to fill positions. “Faculty and staff at VCC go the extra mile to deliver unparalleled, hands-on training.”
Baljinder Sabrao, a student in heavy duty/commercial transport foundation, characterizes the curriculum at VCC as practical and hands-on. “Our instructors explain technical terms and theory in a way we can understand, plus they help students map out their own specific career goals.”
