Youth Train in Trades
Youth Train in Trades is an Industry Training Authority approved youth program which allows students to earn high school graduation credits, foundation trades (pre-apprentice) credentials and workplace hours required for trade certification while still in high school.
NIC Alumni Say
The student-to-instructor ratio is low, so you get a lot of hands-on time and time to ask questions and really delve into the materials. I would definitely recommend coming to NIC.
