The Training for a Semi-skilled Trade is intended for students at least 15 years old, whose learning assessment at the end of Secondary Cycle 1 shows that they have completed elementary-level programs in language of instruction and mathematics but have not obtained the Secondary Cycle One credits for these subjects. This one-year training program leads to an official training certificate in a semi-skilled trade with mention of the trade, awarded by the Minister of Education as well as a competency report provided by the school.
Participating in this program allows students to continue their general education and prepare for a semi-skilled trade.
For students who have not completed their first cycle of secondary education.
A year or more.
