"It was an amazing experience, I loved the way they do everything. It is so well organized and put together. This is a great learning curve for people with zero to no experience. I loved the course, overall it was the best experience I've had learning since I was a child. I would strongly recommend taking the courses offered by RTSC. It's free, they pay you and pay for all the certifications required for your job placement at the end. I rate the experience at RTSC 10/10."
"It is a very good program in that it helps you to gain entry into the industry. You are basically given the expectations and sent on your way which is good. The skills are not so much what you can do. You are drilled on the four pillars so you can get a job and keep it. As you stay in the job your skill development."
"Overall, I would recommend this program to anyone wanting to get a trade; especially if you don't know where to start or how to go about it. This course will provide oneself with the basic fundamental trades & skills that one needs to start their career, build their confidence, learn the hard skills and gain the ability to grasp the concepts. I would definitely recommend RTSC to anyone who wants a trade."
"I think this course and RTSC as a whole is simply fantastic. There are many different courses you can take and all of them end with a 2 week work placement with a big possibility of employment. You get a bunch of safety courses for free as well. I absolutely recommend RTSC to anyone wanting to get into trades. I really wish I would have done this years ago."
"The staff not only push you to succeed, they want you to succeed. They take punctuality and responsibility very seriously and I think that is very good, especially to help form positive long term goals."
"I really enjoyed this program. The time went by so fast because were actually getting involved and participating and having fun."
"My experience with this course has been nothing but awesome. I've learned stuff I never knew and acquired some tickets to help me a better painter. This program provides so much opportunities and I am very thankful for that. You guys go beyond to help people like myself who are lost and not sure what to do. Being in this course has made me realize that I am going to make painting a career and to build my own company. Without this program I would not have gotten this stuff done on my own. So overall I'm very glad and thankful for this course."
"I enjoy every single day coming to class. I never miss a day or am ever late, that's how much I love this program and will learn more."
"I really enjoyed it, my advice for future applicants is to attend everyday. That way you don't miss out on all the good things you can learn."
"The course is amazing and gave me a good understanding being on the job I wasn't as "green" as they thought I would be. My thoughts are this course is amazing and everything you taught is much needed to go on the job. All the activities and the way we had our own cubicles and the trial and error of doing it everyday and taking it all apart has taught it to be second hand nature in installing certain things and also gave a good understanding on knowing which material is used for what."
"I think RTSC is one of the best places to go if you’re looking to get into a trade. Registration was easy and all the staff were super friendly. All the things I learned here was explained in details and ultimately the RTSC taught me everything I needed to know to get me started on this career path."
"I think the program was amazing, we were offered amazing opportunities, and was taught very valuable information for our workplacement. I would not be as well prepared if I would have jumped into this career without the education offered here.
Thank you so much RTSC for the amazing opportunity and wonderful experience. The staff were all great and supportive!."
"This program is incredible, it made my life. They gave me the perfect platform where I can use my skills and fulfill my dream."
"RTSC is a great organization with an amazing group of people. They are very kind, helpful and professional. They helped me build confidence and determination to get what I want and to get it right. I will be forever grateful and HATS OFF for doing such a great job."
"Without this course I would still be questioning on what my next step is. By attending here for these couple months I have been able to really get a grasp on my future and how I would like to pursue it now. I have gained a lot of certificates and blessed by being paid for attending. This course was better than I would ever have imagined."
"Being a student/trainee of RTSC is a very memorable, exciting and enjoyable experience for me. Commitment, attendance and willingness to learn is the best part I have put into it to finish this course. In return, I was equipped with the best tools/skill, knowledge and experience that I can use in pursuing my career."
"This is an excellent program for people. The offering course is more practical and had an opportunity to learn and provide opportunity to get jobs. The most important issue is the job placement, it brought the student to work and create adaptability in the real world."
"I had a great time and gained valuable skills. I can't begin to explain how grateful I was for this program. I would recommend it to anyone I know who are interested in the trades."
"I thought it was a very amazing deal and so in my opinion, something that could not be passed up. I think it is an amazing and very helpful program with lots of pros and no cons."
"This was an amazing opportunity to be able to get free training right out of high school when I have no money and have someone help me start exploring careers for my future and help me get started."
"This program is very good and is an amazing opportunity for any individual graduating highschool."
"I think this program is an amazing opportunity for anyone who wants to succeed."
"I enjoyed the fact that I got the opportunity to get my boot in the door with a great company and can pursue my goal to become a journey person carpenter."
"12 to Trades is an excellent program for recent high school graduates who are seeking a career in the trades. The inclusion of a work placement in the program provides students with a good opportunity to get a career in the trades."
"RTSC is an amazing institution, giving people an opportunity to enter the trades who didn't have one before. They reward the people who are willing to put in the hard work and dedication."
"This was a life changing moment, a great opportunity, I cannot say enough good things about the course. The instructor and the entire RTSC staff went above the call of duty to provide a fun and educational experience. Hat's off to the executive director for overseeing it all. 150% complete satisfaction with all of it."
"Thank you so much for the opportunity! I learned so much, gained experience and came out of the course with so much more opportunity! Thank you!!!!"
"I'd like to thank Regina Trades & Skills Centre for the opportunity to be involved in the Painting Course. "I loved it". It showed me more to painting than I knew."
"Regina Trades & Skills is almost a hidden gem. You give the people who realize the opportunity in front of them a huge benefit in what you provide here. It's almost too good to be true, and if you are willing as the individual, you can go so far. Thank you all for everything you do (everyday), and for choosing me for this course. You have brightened my future tremendously, mine and my family. Thank you."
"The Electrical course at the RTSC was one of the best opportunities I have been provided with. I have never attended educational training where the entire facility was as concerned about my success and satisfaction from the training. I would highly recommend attending the RTSC to anyone wanting to start out in a trade."
"I feel that I have countless new skills and abilities, and a massive amount of new found knowledge. I also feel I was given an opportunity to find a great job and career in my life, and I hope to go far with it."
"I completed the OPTICAL SPLICING FIBRE TECHNICIAN training during March – April 2015 at Regina Trades and Skills Centre. I would like to thank all the people working in this Centre. This training helped me acquire the essential skills and knowledge to work for a reputed company engaged in building the optical fiber network for SASKTEL. The rich experience of the instructors and learning tools available at this training facility provides a life changing career opportunity to the students. I think Regina Trades and Skills Centre is doing an awesome job!"
"I am doing scaffolding at K+S Potash. I like scaffolding but still plan to get my carpenter's ticket. When I couldn't find anything after a few weeks, I thought I would give scaffolding a try. I can also bring some of these hours to my carpenter apprenticeship. I am doing some carpentry work at K+S Potash. It is very different in industrial. There are 16 cranes on site. The pay is ridiculous as well."
