Northern College of Applied Arts and Technology is dedicated to providing students quality education leading to career opportunities. Their small class sizes mean students have easy access to faculty, computers, labs and equipment, but their diverse program offerings and partnerships with other colleges and universities rivals that of larger institutions.
Just a sampling of Northern’s programs includes Welding Engineering Technology, Mining Engineering Technician, Nursing, Paramedic, Pre-Service Firefighter Education and Training, and Veterinary Technician. Programs are offered at the certificate, diploma, degree, pre-apprenticeship and apprenticeship level, and many are offered through distance education.
