How does PTEC work?
Starting in grade 9, students will take regular high school classes at the division’s campus in the University of Manitoba Smartpark while learning and studying the robust, knowledge-based IT industry. In grade 11, their studies can continue at Manitoba Institute of Trades & Technology (MITT) in one of two streams:
• Two-year diploma in Cyber Defense & Cloud Computing Administration
• One-year certificate Software Developer
Pembina Trails School Division aims to provide innovative opportunities for our students. PTEC was created with the vision of equipping our students with the skills required to succeed in the highly competitive technology industry through hands-on learning, mentorship and work experience. Graduates can continue their education at MITT, apply to university or step seamlessly into the workforce.
