      Why isnt the 3rd year course that was ended due to covid 19 not being offered as one of the first courses after reopen ?

        Hello Jordan – Covid-19 forced the College to deliver courses and apprenticeship training online with limited in person activities. The logical progression is to develop these in order of apprenticeship years, starting with First Year Common. AIT has published its course list and the 3rd year training is available, but in other training centers.
