NVIT: Employment Skills Access Certificate Program

The Employment Skills Access program is designed to assist learners in acquiring essential skills for the workplace in British Columbia and apply essential skills in a real life experience through a two week work-site practicum.

The program is unique in that it emphasizes the knowledge, skills, and standards relevant to Indigenous and non-Indigenous individuals, families and communities. The program also includes First Aid, Serving It Right, Food safe, Health and Safety and First Host.

The Employment Skills Access program focuses on Indigenous content in the curriculum. Admission is open to learners that are unemployed, under-employed, Indigenous, Immigrant, older workers, persons with disabilities or who are socially marginalized.

An Employment Skills Access Certificate is awarded to recognize the successful completion of the program.

The program is ten weeks in length and is delivered at both NVIT campuses (Merritt, BC and Burnaby, BC).
