Our WBLC Graphics Installation Technician Program Application Process Consists of three parts:
Fill In The Application
This program is funded by the Government of Canada. As part of that funding, we are required to collect demographic data on applicants.
This data will be compiled, anonymized, and shared with the Government. No individual personal data will be shared.
Once you have completed the application, you will be sent an email with a link to complete the Assessment. You will have 72 hours to start the assessment.
Complete The Assessment
The process takes about 90 minutes, and it is to be completed in one sitting. You will be asked to complete a number of online tests that will measure some of your current competencies and skills.
We recommended that you complete the online tests on a laptop or desktop computer rather than a phone because the screen will be easier to see and use.
Example questions will be provided to show you how a test works and allow you to practice. This assessment process is designed to be fair and objective.
Interview / Coaching
If the results of this assessment process indicate that your current capabilities, competencies and attributes are a good fit with one or more of the employers offering Training Programs, you will be invited to an in-person or telephone interview.
If the assessment process shows a significant gap in one or more competencies, you may have the opportunity to sign up for some free coaching that would be directed at your specific competency gaps. If this applies to your assessment, you will be contacted and provided with more information.
