We will continue to partner with Trades and Skills for many years to come…
“Commercial Sand Blasting & Painting has been partnered/working with Skills and Trades for 3 years now. We have had some great success finding career minded people with the help of the team there. They have been more than helpful in meeting our needs and helping us select candidates and tailor to our industry. They continue to ask questions and add material to their programs to provide us with more skilled and trained individuals from the local community. We will continue to partner with Trades and Skills for many years to come in hopes to add career oriented workers to our team!”

Positive attitudes and job specific training immediately have impact on any company’s
“I have worked with the Saskatoon Trades and Skills center for several years. The training/coaching the center provides is invaluable to the workplace, wherever their students end up working. Positive attitudes and job specific training immediately have impact on any company’s success. I look forward to seeing what potential the Skills center has in store for the industry next year. Thanks for all your hard work and the help you have provided my company.”

We have had great success thus far working with STSC and have retained some very good employees…
“We would like to send a huge Thank You to the team at Saskatoon Trades and Skills Centre. We have had great success thus far working with STSC and have retained some very good employees from their Commercial & Industrial Sandblasting & Painting class along with some of the other trade courses they run. Having new employees join our team with all the safety training that is required along with a positive attitude definitely helps us get our work-force onsite quicker not to mention the service STSC is providing various communities in the Saskatoon Area. We look forward to a long and successful relationship with Saskatoon Trades and Skills Centre.”
Ryan Squires, Park Derochie Coatings Saskatchewan Inc., October 2015
These people truly care about the work they do and the service they provide…
“As a small business in Saskatoon, the challenge to find skilled labour is always evident. Competition is fierce and quality workers rarely surface. Our partnership with Saskatoon trades and skills has bridged that gap for us. These students are given training and skills in relevant fields. This cuts down my initial cost of acquisition for new employees as I no longer need to provide them with these skills or this training. Working with ST&S and their team is always a fun and motivational experience. These people truly care about the work they do and the service they provide. They continue to update, communicate and regurgitate anything relevant to keeping companies like ours happy. For this we are forever grateful.”
