The Regina Trades and Skills Centre celebrated 10 years of operatrion today (Monday).
RTSC says they focus on industry demand when it comes to the programs they teach.
Jason Bien is a former student at RTSC, and now is a site superintendent for ICM.
He says he looked at his personal likes and dislikes when looking to apply for the construction program at RTSC.
“I’ve always liked to work with my hands, I always liked to build stuff whether that’s with my Dad or whatever else,” Bien said. “I figured it would be a great foot in the door to the construction industry.”
Bien, former student and now site superintendent with ICM, says his first day at RTSC was quite unique.
“It’s like going into a job with a strict boss, which is very good. If you’re late, you’re written up, if you’re late you lose pay. So it’s one of the biggest things I learned from here.”
Regina Trades and Skills Centre boasts a 98.1% attendance rate, and 91% of their students are able to find jobs.
