Programs that fit you

Whether you're looking for entry-level skills, creative hands-on learning, or a training environment that suits how you learn best, Employment Training and Preparation (ETP) programs provide options.

ETP prepares you for entering employment in industries that focus on customer service, food service, gardening and food production, and construction and materials handling.

A supportive learning environment

We offer flexible learning programs that start where you are now and provide a foundation to help you develop the confidence to pursue further learning, volunteering and employment.  We’ll help you connect with the college community and enjoy meaningful employment experiences.

Whether you love getting your hands in the dirt or working with people, our supportive staff will help you grow.

Sharpen your skills!

Gain customer service, time management and communication skills. You'll learn telephone and interview skills, how to deal with common workplace problems, and how to prepare a resumé and undertake an effective job search. 

We’ll prepare you to ask questions that will help you when job hunting and give you opportunities to work on basic reading, writing and arithmetic skills. As well, you can get certifications like First Aid, WorldHost, FoodSafe and a modified WHMIS.
