July 17, 2020 - Keyano Apprenticeship Technical Training Fall 2020

Keyano College is excited to resume Apprenticeship training this coming fall. To ensure a safe return to technical training, Keyano will be holding apprenticeship programs in a blended format to provide a safe and sustainable learning environment. The following information is to provide further information on Keyano’s work to resume apprenticeship technical training this academic year.

Program Delivery
Currently, the apprenticeship technical training at Keyano is planned to be offered in a blended model to allow for social distancing and so precautions are adhered to as advised by Alberta’s Chief Medical Officer of Health.

As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Fall 2020 blended model of delivery will allow for apprentices to learn theory online and take part in shop/lab objectives in person, on Campus.  In an effort to reduce risk and ensure health and safety protocols, theory component of Keyano’s technical training programs have been transitioned to an online format. As we resume training, apprentices are only permitted to access campus as scheduled, to complete the lab/shop objectives of their technical training program.

The synchronous (real-time) online portions of the training will be scheduled and communicated to apprentices through their program orientation packages.

Additional Information

Please visit Trades Alberta website for additional funding information for Apprentices.

Due to the uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, AIT is only opening registration for fall for all technical training institutions in Alberta.
