Abstract: SIAST is a polytechnique Institution that has been developing online trades training and upgrading for the past decade. We have been able to allow trades people to remain on the worksite and complete their technical training. Over the past 10 years we have come up with new and innovative ways to engage the learners and at the same time reduce the impact of having them have to left their home communities to attend traditional F2F training. We also offer upgrading for qualified trades professionals to be updated on new regulations and advances in their trade areas.
