NNDSB launches custodial training certificate program
Once again, Near North District School Board (NNDSB) is leading the way in meeting community needs and addressing the multi-year strategic plan priorities of excellence in relationships and excellence in innovation.
NNDSB is pleased to announce the creation of a custodial training services certificate program. Virtual information sessions are taking place Feb. 7 and 9, with an in-person session scheduled Feb. 15. The program is expected to begin in March. It is being offered as part of the board’s continuing adult education program and is open to adults aged 18 and older who either have or are working towards a secondary school diploma (OSSD).
The course is split into two nine-week sessions. There will be nine weeks of in-class theory instruction combined with hands-on learning (8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.) and nine weeks of coop placement. Upon successful completion of the course, students can earn up to five secondary school credits towards their diploma.
Students will receive work-related certifications like first aid/CPR, fall arrest, power hand tool safety, worker safety awareness, infection prevention and control, workplace violence and harassment prevention, and clean sweep. Upon successful completion, students will receive an OSSD and custodial training services certificate.
In addition to graduating as a trained custodial worker, each graduate will be interviewed for a custodial position with NNDSB.
For details about the virtual and in-person sessions, see this program poster.
