Saskatchewan Indian Institute of Technologies (SIIT) is a certified First Nations governed training institution with a mandate to provide training and other labour force development services for the First Nations people of Saskatchewan.
SIIT works closely with industry partners, related organizations, government, and others to provide relevent Trades & Industrial (T&I) programming for First Nations students. Partner organizations include the Saskatchewan Apprenticeship and Trade Certification Commission (SATCC), various levels of government including First Nations government, and other training institutions.
SIIT connects training program graduates and others seeking employment to jobs through the Industrial Career Centers. The T&I department manages seven Career Centers in Regina, Saskatoon, Prince Albert, La Ronge, Yorkton, Meadow Lake and North Battleford.
The T&I department delivers programming at the First Nation community level and includes a variety of work-skill development programs, apprenticeship, and industrial programs. Formed 11 years ago, the SIIT Joint Training Committee enables qualified First Nations and Métis individuals to enter construction trades as apprentices.
Almost all T&I programming is industry derived and sanctioned, such as the apprenticeship training from the SATCC and the 4th-class power engineering curriculum from the Saskatchewan Boiler Branch used in the POT program.
Also available are academic preparation and refresher courses, employability skills development, and safety training courses to meet specific needs and increase opportunities for employment.
