New TRU program counts trades apprenticeship training toward degree
Thompson River University is offering a new and unique program for tradespeople interested in advancing their careers. The new Trades & Technology Leadership degree program takes existing trades or technology qualifications and integrates previous practical experience with studies in leadership and management skills.
Certified tradespeople and technologists can transfer up to 50 per cent of their credits toward the new degree and gain the business and leadership knowledge they need for management and other advanced positions.
Delivered primarily on-line, this unique program is a first of its kind in Canada and includes credit for previous trades/technology education and expertise, flexibility and accessibility for working persons and elective courses that suit the individual’s particular needs
