Hands down a world class experience from a world class institution. I’ve been at sait for 4 years of training and I’m going to miss it with my heart and soul when I am done. My instructors have been the best teachers I’ve ever had. The skills I’ve acquired and the people I’ve met have re defined me as a person. There’s simply nowhere better in western Canada to educate yourself when it comes to the trades. I’m a mechanical trade and the level experience and training provided by the labs, shops and classes given by sait is simply second to none. If you take your education and self improvement seriously, SAIT IS FOR YOU!!!!

The Electrician program saved me a lot of grunt work. Compared to pre-employment graduates or people who start apprenticeships without work experience, you are basically jumping the line. Really good instructors and so many relationships with companies that you're going to get a good job out of this program if you do the work. I had a retail job in Calgary until I was 23, which is when I decided I wanted to challenge myself and start a new career. Looking back, I wish I started at SAIT sooner!
