AIT has created a community of Albertans with experience and knowledge related to one or more of Alberta’s designated trades or apprenticeship education programs, called the Trades and Apprenticeship Community of Expertise (TACE). This community is an opportunity for interested skilled trades experts to share their ideas, opinions, and expertise with AIT on the future of their trades.
