*** ALL TRAINING CANCELLED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE ***

All training including Scaffolding, Carpentry, Introductory, Enhancement, and all Safety courses are cancelled at the Alberta Carpenters Training Centre locations in Edmonton, Calgary and Fort McMurray.

With the current COVID-19 pandemic and the Alberta Governments announcement to close all schools and post-secondary facilities in Alberta; we at the Alberta Carpenters Training Centre have made the decision to follow suit and cancel all scheduled training until further notice. This is to ensure the safety of our members, instructors and staff.

If you had courses booked, there is no need to contact us as you are automatically marked cancelled and no courses are being rescheduled at this time.

If you need a safety course immediately and you feel comfortable doing so, you may contact our approved provider AT Safety at 780-417-3777 as they are currently operating and running scheduled courses. The Alberta Carpenters Training Centre admin staff will be in the office to do member approvals. Any courses that are taken during this time will be covered/reimbursed up to the eligible amounts listed on our Approved Providers List provided members meet all approval requirements (i.e. in Goodstanding, no fees owing, hasn't taken the course in 3 years).

Once this situation is under control and things return to normal we will reschedule all courses and proceed with bookings and training.

You may contact our office at 780-455-6532 with questions and concerns. We appreciate your understanding and corporation in these uncertain times.

*** COURSE LOCATION AND ADDRESS WILL BE IN THE CONFIRMATION EMAIL. CHECK YOUR EMAIL IF YOU REGISTER FOR A COURSE. IF YOU DO NOT RECEIVE A CONFIRMATION EMAIL WITHIN 24HRS OF REGISTRATION, CALL THE TRAINING CENTRE TO CONFIRM LOCATION. SHOWING UP AT THE WRONG LOCATION WILL RESULT IN A $150 NO SHOW FEE. ***
