FT 040 - Fisheries Field Technician

The Yukon Fisheries Field Assistant Program (Fish Tech) is an intensive course that gives students the training necessary to find employment in fisheries-related field work. In order to make Fish Tech certification available to a wider group of students, the classroom based portion is currently being changed to an online format; allowing students to complete the classroom component of Fish Tech from Community Campuses in early spring.

Program Delivery:
The course is delivered in two components: The first portion is seven weeks of online learning, followed by a 10-day field camp (May 29 - June 7, 2017) where the hands-on portion of the course will be taught.
