About Us

DieTrac Technical Institute was established in the 1990's to train people in the industrial trades. At that time there was a major void in training in the trades and DieTrac’s mission was to fill that void. Today there is tremendous competition in trades training, however, management is striving to make DieTrac a “centre of excellence in the skilled trades”. Presently, DieTrac is approved by the PACB (Provincial Apprenticeship Certification Board) to offer twelve programs . The following programs are offered at our campus:
