Louis Riel Arts and Technology Centre in south Winnipeg is expanding its offerings to students interested in broadcast and online media, and plumbing.
The Manitoba government is providing nearly $1 million in new funding to upgrade and outfit space at the school for the two new programs, including modern training facilities.
“Plumbing and broadcast media are natural fits to complement the programs we already offer and will be excellent options for future students,” said Brian Cameron, principal of Louis Riel Arts and Technology Centre. “We’re very excited about expanding our programs to include these two engaging and in-demand vocational areas, and we look forward to continuing to serve the needs of our community.”
The plumbing program will accommodate 40 students per year, and fill an existing need for both industry and training institutions.
