Payroll and Benefits Administration is a 16-week program designed to provide students with the knowledge and skills necessary to process an organization's payroll, communicate payroll information to its stakeholders and perform basic accounting tasks as they relate to payroll and benefits. This program is a great addition to NBCC’s Miramichi campus as the federal government has recently opened the Federal Payroll Centre in the city.

Introduction to Skilled Trades is a 19-week program in which students will explore building and construction, metals and manufacturing, motive power, and the industrial sector while obtaining valuable math, communications and workplace safety training. Some courses in this program may be transferable to other trades programs at NBCC.

For those students who would like to experience a test run of the college environment, we have a few Student for a Day events coming up. It’s a great way to learn more about NBCC, meet the instructors, and connect with current students to get a better idea of what college is all about. The upcoming dates are:

· January 24

· February 28

· March 27

As always, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact your regional recruitment advisor or myself.
