We have a carpenter-training program through Marconi Campus NSCC working with the METS program. We are currently utilizing these individuals in constructing our new units. One individual passed the test and has received his Red Seal Journeyman Certificate.

CMHC requested that Eskasoni coordinate a trades program through the Nova Scotia Community College for Cape Breton Bands. We currently have seven (7) students enrolled in a heating program and four (4) in the plumbing program. Mary Gould and I work closely with Marconi Campus to ensure the success of the program. These individuals have been certified and continue to obtain their journeymen hours.
