Providing Opportunities for Future Technicians
The Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT) is only a short drive away from our headquarters in Calgary, Alberta. SAIT offers a variety of technical programs "built on passion, to shape new worlds as entrepreneurs, leaders and community builders", in fact many skilled technicians in our field once walked the walls of this technical institute. With their values and vision being like that of ours at NorthPoint Technical Services, we have teamed up to provide opportunities for future technicians through funding two of their Apprenticeship Awards.
These two awards are awarded to apprentices in their 2nd year of the Electrical Motor Systems Technician Apprentice program. Each selected apprentice will be given $1,000 based on the following criteria:
1) Academic Achievement 50%
2) Success in Classroom 25%
3) Community Involvement/Volunteerism 25%
SAIT Alumni and Development Personnel determine the award recipients based on the above criteria.
We can't wait to celebrate the two individuals at the 2019/2020 SAIT Awards Ceremony.
