Our mobile training labs, operated in conjunction with educational partners and employers, expand provincial training capacity and increase access to trades training by taking shop facilities and instructors to remote areas of Saskatchewan. Each lab includes a tractor trailer unit with pop-out sides that transform it into a 1,100-square-foot training facility. Labs accommodate a range of programs, including welding, industrial mechanics and electrical. Training sessions last from seven to 20 weeks, depending on the program delivered, and labs can accommodate 12 students at a time.
