Youth Explore Trades Sampler Certificate

Youth Explore Trades Sampler Certificate

The Youth Explore Trades Sampler (YETS) gives
students a chance to explore trades further before
committing to a dedicated trade. The program will
provide participants with an in-depth opportunity
to explore five trades: carpentry, culinary,
welding, electrical and automotive technician.
Students will develop safe workplace practices,
skills development, and workforce skills. The
learning outcomes will offer students with
theoretical and practical knowledge while
providing an experiential and realistic overview
of trades. Upon completion of the program,
students will also be more job-ready after
receiving workforce certificates.

The Youth Explore Trades Sampler is a partnership
between Nicola Valley Institute of Technology
(NVIT) and interested school districts. This is a
Dual Credit system registered with the Industry
Training Authority (ITA).

The YETS program will be broken into sections,
each comprising of 50 hours.
. Carpentry
. Culinary
. Welding
. Electrical
. Automotive Technician
. Work Skills (Foodsafe, First Aid, WHIMIS)

The program will provide a maximum of 16 seats and
will be offered September to June during one block
at the high school. Work skills training will be
complete during the times the certificate
instruction is available. This may be evenings,
weekends or a full weekday.

A portion of the program will be taught at NVIT,
and a portion of the program will be taught at a
school district location, with the option of
training in NVIT's mobile trailer.
