As the economy grows, NAC offers trades training programs that will lead to good jobs in Nunavut. To qualify for these jobs, graduates must be well trained in their program specialty, as well as be prepared to serve an apprenticeship.
The Pre-Apprenticeship Cook program is a 160-day multi-disciplinary program that aims to give students the skills, knowledge, and confidence required to enter into an Apprenticeship in the Cook trade. Strong emphasis on safety, including the WSCC 'Go Safe’, First Aid certifications, and a Food safety course prepare students as they complete the Level 1 Cook Apprenticeship theory. The Apprenticeship Cook Theory courses in Nunavut are equivalent with the Alberta Apprenticeship Level 1 Theory.
