One of the best ways you can prepare for a new job is to ensure that you have the right skills and training. This often includes industry-recognized certifications that are required by many employers, and in some cases, required by law. A special bonus if you are a BC high school student: these certificates all qualify for graduation credit in the new Workforce Certificates 12 course.
