Making the (right) choice for college-level technical training
Year after year, college-level technical training does well on the lists of the top training programs that are always offered to a large number of high school graduates when the time comes to choose their future programs and CEGEP.
What you should also know is that by 2022, a large number of new jobs created in Quebec will require college-level technical training: no less than 85,000 technologist or technician positions need to be filled from now until then. Young people are given a wide choice among the 132 technical programs offered and among these, more than a hundred have an employment rate higher than 85%, with several of them leading to jobs offering salaries significantly above average, up to $50,000 in the first year!
More importantly, technical training can also lead elsewhere. Every year, about 30% of technical diploma holders decide to pursue their studies at university.
