At the Adult Learning Centre, we coordinate many workshops. These workshops are designed to enhance your resume, and are primarily for students enrolled in Tourism 12, however, there is often room for those* who wish to have one or more of the following workshops:
Several of these workshops (Serving It Right, Squirrel, and Cashier Training) can be organized by students through staff (ie. they are self-paced programs).
Other workshops involve signing up on our student bulletin board and attending a full day (or several day) seminar to obtain your certificate (ie. First Aid, Food Safe, Super Host).
