The event will be hosted in conjunction with a 'Return to Learn' session featuring information on skilled trades and technology courses

Lambton College will be hosting a “Return to Learn” session featuring services and information tailored toward those interested in Skilled Trades & Technology programs on Wednesday, May 10th.

Anyone considering a Lambton College program for September will have the opportunity to chat with representatives from a variety of services, and consult with faculty from the School of Technology, Energy & Apprenticeships. The drop-in event will run from 4 p.m. until 6 p.m. in the Upper Cafeteria.

Programs to be highlighted include: Construction Carpentry Technician, Culinary Management, Electrical Techniques, Electromechanical Engineering Technician, General Machinist, Millwright Mechanical Technician, Renovation Technician, Welding Techniques and more.

“This event is an excellent opportunity for anyone considering a career in the skilled trades and technology sector. Prospective students will be able to meet with faculty and learn more about available programs and student services on campus,” said Kevin Ryan, associate dean of apprenticeships and trades, at Lambton College.

Prospective students will be able to apply for programs on-the-spot and the Lambton College Enrolment team will be available to assist all guests with the application process during the event.

Representatives from Lambton College’s Academic Upgrading department will also be available to assist students who might be missing college prerequisites. Academic Upgrading is a free service that allows students to upgrade their academic skills in order to meet college program admission requirements.

Guest will be able to learn more about changes to the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) and find out if he or she qualify for free tuition. The latest updates have been designed to ensure that non-repayable grant funding exceeds tuition fees and also allows adult learners to qualify for more grants so they can go back to school to upgrade their skills.
