NLC receives funding for mobile trades training

Bookmark and Share

Northern Lakes College has been given $3.05 million in funding from Alberta’s Ministry of Innovation and Advanced Education for Mobile Trades Training facilities. The mobile units enable the college to bring training to remote and rural communities in northern Alberta. Demand for millwrights, welders, carpenters, and other trades is high in Alberta’s remote communities, but these places often lack adequate facilities to support trades training. NLC President Ann Everatt said, “these cost-effective mobile training facilities are a necessary component that will allow Northern Lakes College to provide training to better meet training and labour market demands across our vast service region.” Alberta Premier Dave Hancock said, “Northern Lakes College can now meet the needs of students in communities where these opportunities haven’t traditionally been available and better respond to local labour market demands for more skilled tradespeople.” NLC will also receive $523,000 annually to support program delivery.
