Skills Parachute Program

The Skills Parachute Program is designed to increase the skills of the client and improving their chances of maintaining or gaining employment. The Skills Parachute Program is for short-term courses up to a maximum of 5 days in length and at a maximum cost of $1,500. For short-term courses longer than 5 days but less than 12 weeks in duration, applicants can apply for funding through the Short-Term Courses Funding Program. Please Note: Funding under this program is not guaranteed and as this is a reimbursement program, you cannot begin this course without our prior approval.  If you have taken this course on your own, before applying to us, we cannot reimburse you.
