Certification: an added value to the integration program

In partnership with the Adult Education Centre of Champlain, the 16 Renaissance thrift stores offer a Training Certificate for a Semiskilled Trade (TCST) for Cashier or Sorter/Labeller. Though not mandatory, this certification is offered to all participants in the integration program.

Certification notably offers anyone who was educated outside of Quebec the opportunity to obtain a certificate recognized within the jurisdiction, which is an important factor when hoping to return to the workforce or to studies.

Certification is guided by a teacher who serves as a supplementary support to the participant on an academic and professional level. The program demands little engagement outside of work hours. During the program, participants must pass evaluations in mathematics and French for which they may be helped beforehand by a teacher.

Lastly, certification enables the right to student rates on STM busses and the metro.
