Do you have Meeting Rooms Available? 

The Nova Scotia Apprenticeship Agency (NSAA) is currently looking at alternative locations for apprentices to write their qualification exams. As all Nova Scotia Community Colleges are closed due to COVID-19, tourism accommodations provide a viable option for consideration.

Please note that this is an expression of interest only. NSAA will have more details once Government restrictions have been lifted and exam schedules can be planned. 

Meeting rooms would be required for exam writings for all trades in the following locations: Sydney, Halifax, Truro, Port Hawkesbury, Bridgewater, Kentville, New Glasgow, and Yarmouth.
