Job-Ready Construction & Skilled Trades Training
NATS offers career-focused training programs in the growing fields of building technology, construction, skilled trades, and even green energy. Regardless of the training that you choose, you can gain an understanding of current theories in your field. And your classroom learning will be backed up by solid practice that reinforces your learned knowledge and abilities.
The programs at NATS can help prepare you for jobs that mostly have moderate to strong career outlooks in Ontario. And, depending on your career path, average hourly wages can range from $17 to $27 per hour.* Check out some of these other encouraging Ontario job stats:
- It is expected that over 86,000 construction workers in Ontario will be retiring between 2015 and 2024. And with additional job growth expected in the sector, Ontario estimates that the province will require almost 110,000 new construction workers by 2024.**
- It is estimated that 20 percent of new jobs in Ontario will be related to the skilled trades between 2015 and 2025.***
- The solar energy market across Canada could employ up to 10,000 people by 2020. And, as of 2015, almost all of Canada's solar energy is generated in Ontario.**** This is partly due to the Green Energy and Green Economy Act (GEGEA), which was passed in 2009 and supports Ontario's commitment to grow the province's solar energy market.
