If you are attracted to modern manufacturing technologies and enjoy working with machines, this skills-based program will appeal to you. It prepares you for entry into the tool and die/tool maker skilled trade or related career in the manufacturing sector, including apprenticeship. You will learn the high-precision hand fitting, positioning, aligning and assembly techniques involved in the production of stamping dies.

Also, the program incorporates a number of months of paid co-op education work, and covers all the learning outcomes for Level 1 and Level 2 of the related apprenticeship program in Ontario. As a graduate of this program, you may not be required to complete the in-school apprenticeship training or take an exemption exam for Levels 1 and 2 should you choose to pursue a tool and die maker apprenticeship.

The optional co-op stream includes two back-to-back co-op work terms.

I learned about WIST (Women in the Skilled Trades) Electrical Technician program through a high school career fair in 2018, "Jill of All Trades." There must have been 100 women there to introduce girls like me to the skilled trades. I was always interested in engineering, but I loved to take things apart and study them, which is why working as an electrical technician made so much sense. I didn't realize it then, but that day is when I decided to be an electrician. I couldn't have done it without the WIST program and Conestoga. I hope more girls and women will consider taking the leap.
