Sprott Shaw offers a comfortable learning environment for Aboriginal students to thrive in a more personal setting. We understand that part of our student’s success is having real connections with their classmates and instructors. That’s why we only teach you what you need know, in smaller class sizes, to ensure easier access to instructors and greater engagement in your daily lessons. You are also welcome to return to Sprott Shaw for free lifetime refresher training and upgrading*.
You can start a new and meaningful career in as little as 12 weeks after graduating from our one of our more than 100 PCTIA accredited programs. There are many opportunities in your community and throughout Canada for a long standing career. These opportunities include community health representative, early childhood educator, health director, assisted living worker, practical nurse, electrician, and tourism coordinator to name a few.
