CAPEI Youth in Trades is sponsored by the Construction Association of PEI and is funded in part by the Government of Canada.
The program, which is held in Charlottetown and in Summerside, includes 30 hours per week for eight weeks of employability skills, safety training, and hands-on projects in the classroom.
Participants complete small hands-on projects involving various trades at the Construction Training Centre. They are paid minimum wage (not insurable) for the classroom portion of the program. They also receive a 14-week paid entry-level work placement in the construction industry. Hours are insurable and the wage is set by the employer.
Participants must be 16 to 30 years old, out of school, or working 20 hours or less a week. Certifications provided for Safety Training.
