Information for apprentices about COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

On June 10, the Ontario government announced that a limited number of in-person programs will be allowed to resume at Ontario colleges next month. While this is encouraging news, it is important to note that this applies to Post Secondary Programs ONLY during the summer months. An apprenticeship update will be provided on July 15.

 

Apprenticeship Update June 1, 2020

The Marshall School of Skilled Trades & Apprenticeship can now begin the process of planning for the phased re-opening of our campus. The phased re-opening of our campus will allow time to implement any changes that are necessary to protect the health and well-being our students and employees.

 

At this time, the new Fall training dates have not been determined. We continue to work closely with the Ministry of Labour, Training and Skills Development to determine next steps and will share this information as soon as it is available.

 

Access to Campus/Lockers - Students may request to gain access to the campus to retrieve items from lockers. Requests are to be made by email to security [at] mohawkcollege.ca. Please indicate the location of the locker, including campus and hallway in your email. Security will advise you of the screening requirements.
