What Companies Are Saying About The Program

We are very excited about Graphics Installation Technician Program. There is a lot of potential for this from the sign industry’s perspective. Attracting, educating, and retaining talent is a strategic priority for our industry across the North American continent. I am excited how this program can make education more accessible to those in the more remote regions of Canada. And, it can play a huge equalizing role.
