NWCC discontinues welding program in Prince Rupert this fall

The Northwest Community College will no longer be offering the welding program at its Prince Rupert campus.

Heather Bastin of the the college says the welding program won’t be offered this fall, but that doesn’t mean it won’t return to Prince Rupert.

She says the discontinuation of the program in Prince Rupert was made in conjunction with industry advice.

NWCC will soon be releasing a three-year academic course plan that will outline what courses will be offered and where.

The plan will rotate trades courses between various campuses.

But Bastin says there’s still room for flexibility based on course demand.

In place of the welding program; plumbing foundations, electrical level three, and intro to trades will be available at the Prince Rupert campus.

  1. With all that’s been touted in the media these days about needed trades training for the local northern populace so they can take part in active employment for the anticipated mega-projects, why is NWCC going in the opposite direction?
    Looks like a definite lack of foresight by college officials to me.
