Funding announced for trades programming at the Nicola Valley Institute of Technology.
President Ken Tourand says the $160,000 received from the province will be used to buy new and replace aging trades and technology equipment.
"With updated equipment in facilities like our newly opened Centre of Excellence in Sustainability, learners in NVIT's on-campus and community-based trades and technology programs will be trained on modern equipment, resulting in a sense of confidence in their skills and the training they receive at NVIT. They will have the opportunity to gain the skills needed to be leaders in the workforce once they graduate."
The funding announcement comes during Apprenticeship Recognition Week in British Columbia.
The new equipment is expected to be in place by April.
