Pre & Post Canadian Workplace Training (CWT)

What Is Pre & Post Canadian Workplace Training (CWT)?

Pre & Post Canadian Workplace Training (CWT), funded by IRCC,is a job-specific English language training program that helps students find entry level jobs and improve their job retention. Before enrolling, students choose from one of the three job-specific courses listed: (1) Childcare Level 1 Certificate Training, (2) Hotel Housekeeping Job Training, or (3) Warehouse / Logistics Job Training.

After choosing their focus, students in the course receive language training that incorporates job-specific technical skills training. In addition to the regular instruction, students will have the chance to meet employers for workshops, presentations, and mock interviews. Clients will receive 210 hours (over 17.5 weeks) of part-time in-class training and job search support.

Students who complete Childcare Level 1 Certificate Training will receive a Child Development Assistant certificate, issued by Alberta Human Services. Students who complete Hotel Housekeeping or Warehouse / Logistics Job Training will receive a CIES-issued graduation certificate.
