BCIT and Coast Capital’s New Trades Course
It may seem a bit odd for us to plug a college course, but the BC Institute of Technology, in partnership with Coast Capital Savings, has put together something we’re tempted to call brilliant.
Starting in April, BCIT will offer a class on entrepreneurship that’s directly focussed on building a business in the trades. The “Apprentice to CEO” course teaches folks the ins and outs of running a business in the trades – which has different needs than other businesses.
Topics will include things like invoicing, job tracking, estimating, finances and safety.
With all the great stuff going on in high schools and now colleges, we’re starting to think we finished school 15 years too late!
