The ESTR (Education and Skills Training) program offers four certificates for students who have experienced barriers to employment to prepare them for entry level positions within the workforce.

Each nine-month certificate runs from September through May and is divided between classroom work and hands on experiential learning. Students will develop job readiness skills, may complete industry recognized certificates, and do other activities to prepare students for entry level positions within a number of areas of employment. These activities may include work experience in areas on campus or with local businesses.

ESTR certificates are:

Career Exploration
Kitchen Assistant
Retail Worker
Trades Assistant
Not all certificates are offered each year- dependent on enrollment and funding.

Applicants may apply for enrolment into any of the programs offered.
