NWCC joins forces with Saskatchewan program on warehouse training

Northwest Community College is once again expanding its reach to deliver educational programs to the region, joining up with a program hosted by Saskatchewan Polytechnic to deliver their warehouse worker program inn Prince Rupert.

The partnership between the two institutions features online and video conferencing training for Indigenous students from the region, as part of the program students will be required to complete both training activities online and outside of the virtual classroom.

NWCC and Saskatchewan Polytech signed the agreement earlier this year, with the first class of the 24 week program starting in April with 12 students continuing their studies through until September.

“We are always looking at new and innovative ways to deliver training to our students and we are pleased to have this agreement with Saskatchewan Polytechnic,”  Ken Burt, President and CEO NWCC

The program is the first between the two post secondary education providers, making use of the Saskatchewan institutions work in online learning programs.

More background on the announcement from last week can be found here.

This month also marks a milestone moment for NWCC, with the college soon to retire the Northwest Community College name, changing over to Coast Mountain College on June 18th.
