Considering a trades career as a gas fitter, domestic appliance technician, plumber, or HVAC technician?
One of the first things you should do is investigate gas certification requirements for your province or territory, and reputable gas training programs in your area.
If you're looking to become a gas technician in Ontario, it's important to understand the various levels of licensing (G1, G2, G3) and what they mean.
In this post, we break down the differences between each gas certification level, what you'll study to prepare for each exam, and what you should know about the TSSA.
Considering heading back to school to train for a career in the construction trades?
You’re probably looking at which trades are most in demand so you can be sure your educational investment will pay off with a steady, well-paid job.
You’re also probably looking to build a diverse set of skills, so you’ll be eligible for several different kinds of employment after graduation (keeping your options open).
One of the smartest ways to fulfill the above criteria is to select a “combined” pre-apprenticeship training program. You’ll learn skills from two different trades that are often paired together on the job. This means double the technical knowledge, and double the job opportunities.
