Prince's Trust Canada is excited to announce a new programming partnership with BCIT!


 Please join us on September 11th from 12:30 p.m. - 1:30 p.m. PDT for an information session!


Through BCIT’s new Associate Certification in Construction of Mass Timber Structures program launching in October 2022, carpenters and ironworkers will have the chance

to participate in a nine-month upskilling program to contribute to a more sustainable future.

 

Prince’s Trust Canada is forming a cohort of four to eight interested learners from equity deserving groups, which we will support through value-added programming and financial support.


Working online and in-person, Prince’s Trust Canada cohort program is designed to provide students with additional technical knowledge in mass timber construction and construction management of projects, emphasizing the installation and practical skills in the on-site installation of the structures. Additional cohort sessions will also focus on problem-solving, creativity, teamwork, project management and one-on-one networking sessions with the industry experts.
