Women in Trades Training (WITT)

is funded through the BC Job Fund Agreement to encourage and increase the number of female apprentices in the Province of BC. In the past 8 years we have introduced approximately 900 to trades training. We are here to support women through their trades training and help connect them with employment.


WITT will be offering a 12 week exploratory trades program for women called the Gateway to the Building Trades for Women starting in Vernon on April 10, 2017. During this 12 week exploratory trades program, participants are introduced to trades which may include carpentry, welding, plumbing, automotive, and electrical. They build projects individually and as a team. The program also includes OFA1 certification (Occupational First Aid Level 1) and Employment Readiness skills training.


We are currently accepting applications for this program and will only be selecting 10 participants for the program.


Please contact us to discuss WITT, the Gateway program, and our supports. I can be reached by email or call 250 575 7130 to discuss more details.
