12 To Trades

Regina Trades & Skills Centre offers a 12 to Trades 6 week employment program. The program is designed for recent high school graduates that are looking for a start towards a career in the trades. The choice is yours regarding which trade you want to get into.

We prepare you with all safety certifications required for entry level employment in that industry. Appropriate workplace behaviours are discussed and then we place you with a mentor company in that specific area.

The program will provide learners with the basic fundamental knowledge and practical skills needed to build a career in the trades. In partnership with Saskatchewan Apprenticeship Commission you earn apprenticeship hours. With the completion of your SYA Passport, you earn 300 additional hours and your indenture fee and level 1 tuition becomes waived.

Registration is now closed. 12 to Trades will open on the registration section of this website in February 2024. Applicants must be 21 years of age or under and complete a Grade 12 or equivalent between July 1, 2023 - June 30, 2024.

Adult Training

Helping you “Get Your Boot in the Door” is what RTSC focuses on. Our short term training gives you the safety training, skills training and tool and material knowledge to get you an entry-level employment opportunity in the field you choose. All courses are industry specific and the training is all relevant to that industry.

The training is done in the shop, classroom and on a job site. You spend a minimum 70% of your training doing hands on practical learning. Some projects are completed in the community by applying your training on an actual job site. You learn under a Red Seal instructor (or equivalent experience) and earn apprenticeship hours.
