Our Training Partner: RRC - Stevenson Campus
Stevenson Campus was established in 1984 with a mandate
to provide skills training and upgrading to meet skill shortages and other identified
human resource needs within the Canadian aviation industry. In 1992, Stevenson
moved its campus out to the former Airforce base at Southport near Portage La
In 2002, Stevenson Campus merged with Red
River College to form the new entity. This merger also includes Stevenson's Southport
campus. The amalgamation of the two entities
provides greater flexibility in programming, and more effective use of training
staff, equipment and other resources in responding to industry demand.
The courses are nationally accredited and certified by either Transport Canada
of CAMC, ensuring recognition and portability throughout Canada for graduates.
