GTTI’s New Skilled Trades Institute officially opens, registration open for July session
Welcome class of July 2021.
Against all odds and amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Georgina Trades Training Inc. opened its doors to a new batch of students – skilled trade students.
More than 100 students started training in the GTTI’s Skilled Trades Institute temporary location, at the Salvation Army Jackson’s Point Camp and Conference Centre.
Of those, more than 75 per cent are from York Region.
Students are training both online and in-class and are subject to a number of COVID-19 safety protocols, including daily screening and temperature checks along with increased sanitization and physical distancing measures in school.
In the first batch of applications, GTTI received more than 235 applications for 120 free-tuition spots for the new trades school.
