The program is fun and interactive which really helps students such as me to be motivated in class. It’s amazing how classes can become like one big, happy family.

 

 

JEREMY LIONStudent, Automobile Mechanics

The best is the teamwork experience. It’s wonderful how staying in the same group throughout the program, we all became a great group of friends – quick to help one another.
 

 

TINA CROSSGraduate, Assistance in Health Care Facilities

Wherever I look for work, they ask me for Canadian experience and bilingualism. In my experience at WICC the teachers have been very patient and comprehensive and the program is doable for me as an immigrant. I tell my friends that learning here is rewarding.

The best is working in the lab and getting hands-on experience with my classmates.

COVID-19 PANDEMIC PROTOCOL


August 10, 2020

UPDATE:

In these perplexing times, understandably, the directives from the Ministère de l’Éducation et de l’Enseignement Supérieur du Québec continue to change and evolve. Nevertheless, at WICC our students and staffs wellbeing is what we care about most. We are also committed to offering a professional learning environment that is student centered, where every individual has the opportunity to make informed decisions regarding their future choices, to be active contributors in their communities, and to reach their full academic potential.

That being stated, WICC has now resumed all pedagogical activities through remote on-line learning in tandem with in-house exams, laboratory classes and shop classes. Anyone entering the Centre must, however, adhere to the strict social distancing and sanitary regulations specified in the Centre’s Covid-19 protocol and the CNESST’s Workplace Sanitary Standards Guide – COVID-19.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank our amazing staff and students (past and present), who work in the health system or as essential workers in addition to those who volunteer and are helping others get through this difficult time. Your bravery, diligence and selflessness are a gift to the world and appreciated beyond words. We will be indebted to you all forever. Once again, THANK YOU!

Take care of your families and yourselves. Stay safe, stay healthy and keep looking for opportunities to smile and laugh as often as you can.
