Yang Lui and Frank Adjei - Apprenticeship Prep

When I came to Canada I didn’t know anything about these kinds of tools. And my English was bad, my math was bad; NorQuest College helped me a lot.

What to expect from the program

The program has two terms:

  • the first term focuses on essential skills and workplace culture. You will receive instruction in math, science, computers, employability, and practical trades skills, all of which will prepare you to write the Apprenticeship Entrance Exam for levels 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5.
  • In the second term, you will participate in a work experience component.

Graduate with experience

NorQuest College believes in the importance of on-the-job experience that provides an enriched learning opportunity.

You’ll graduate this program with 365 hours of field experience in your chosen trade.
