Re-Open Saskatchewan Training Subsidy (RSTS)
Saskatchewan Polytechnic Courses Eligible for Re-Open Saskatchewan Training Subsidy
As the province re-opens, Saskatchewan businesses are faced with a new normal that may require employees to do additional tasks that require training. To support this, the provincial government has created the Re-Open Saskatchewan Training Subsidy (RSTS), an employer-driven, short-term training program that provides 100% reimbursement for eligible employers to train employees.
Sask Polytech offers a variety of short-term training options.
Choose courses that support the viability of your business in the post-COVID environment, such as health and safety requirements, administrative skills training and leadership training. Short-term training will help your business compete by giving employees the knowledge, skills and confidence they need to adapt to the “new normal”.
Sask Polytech training meets key RSTS criteria.
Sask Polytech has been Saskatchewan’s primary institution for post-secondary applied education and training for over 60 years. We are a leader in online training, and business and industry's go-to source for short-term, industry-relevant training. We also meet RSTS criteria:
- Saskatchewan-based third party not affiliated with the employer.
- Courses a minimum of 8 hours in length per trainee, by the same training provider and completed within 4 months.
- Courses result in a credential (record of completion, certificate, grade, etc.)
The application deadline has been extended to December 31st, 2020. Don’t miss this opportunity to subsidize 100% of your training.
