Programs at St. Lawrence College are delivered using a variety of instruction modes. Courses may be offered in the classroom or lab, entirely online, or in a hybrid mode which combines classroom sessions with online learning activities.

Upon registration, each full-time student is provided a St. Lawrence College email account which is used to communicate important information about program or course events.
Student Workload Demands:
The student can expect to work a minimum of 5-10 hours per week outside of classroom time on course material.
Current Grant Opportunities:
This program is considered a Red Seal trade (see www.red-seal.ca ). Apprenticeship grants are designed to make a career in the trades an attractive choice and to encourage more apprentices to complete their training. Eligible apprentices could receive up to $4,000 which can be used to pay for tuition, travel, tools, or other expenses.
As per the Service Canada website, registered apprentices who have successfully finished their first or second year / level (or equivalent) in one of the Red Seal trades can apply for the Apprenticeship Incentive Grant (AIG) which is a taxable cash grant of $1,000 per year / level up to a maximum of $2,000. Registered apprentices who have completed their training, become a certified journeyperson in a designated Red Seal trade, and who obtain either the Red Seal endorsement or a provincial or territorial Certificate of Qualification can apply for the Apprenticeship Completion Grant (ACG), which is a taxable cash grant of $2,000.
