Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, students must now book an appointment to write their assessment(s) at the Trades Learning Centre.

Department Closure:  we are closed from August 4th to 17th - there will be no assessment sessions or processing of assessment requests during that time.


The English assessment contains questions about readings that are similar in style to readings in trades training textbooks, manuals, and handouts. Diagrams, charts, tables, and short and long reading passages are presented. No prior knowledge of the content is assumed or required.
