Vocational Programs

Vocational training programs continue to gain popularity in Quebec as an interesting avenue of post-secondary training permitting relatively quick (average of 6-22 months) access to good hands-on employment opportunities in a wide variety of fields. These increasingly competitive programs are offered across the province in such fields as carpentry, industrial design, professional cooking, automobile mechanics, plumbing and heating, and health care professions to name but a few. Most Vocational Training programs require that students successfully complete Sec. 4 (Grade 10) English, French, and Math (core classes). A few programs are available to students with Sec. 3 (Grade 9) core classes.


Student for a day

Vocational training centres invite you to see into the future and imagine what it would be like to follow a given training program. As a "Student for a Day"; you are given the opportunity to experience firsthand a typical day in a training program that interests you. You are able to talk with students enrolled in the program, share their background and experience, and help you in validating your career choice. It's an opportunity to feel like a new recruit; learning the ropes of your potential training program. Contact the training centre that interests you for info on how to register to be a student-for-a-day!
