New SIAST facility in Saskatoon

With a growing economy comes a growing demand for trades as the city expands. Specifically, the demand for plumbers and pipefitters in Saskatchewan has prompted SIAST to open a new training facility.

The 3 classroom, 3050 sq ft space offers a large shop space and is close to the existing main campus.

This new centre allows over 200 new students to enrol in plumbing and pipefitting programs and will be able to accommodate 1,120 new plumbing apprentices annually.

More trained and skilled workers localized in one central area will allow more quality workers entering the workforce and see that shortages will significantly be reduced.

If you are considering a move to Saskatoon to take part in one of the many educational programs our city has to offer, contact me for information related to the housing market in the area or information about housing with rental potential to help offset your educational costs.
