Samsung and Centennial College partner with the Samsung Tech Institute

In a move designed to foster innovative new approaches to continuing education, today Samsung Canada and Centennial College announced a landmark partnership to bring the Samsung Tech Institute to Canada.

The new education program will train students to understand, diagnose, and service select Samsung home appliances as certified Samsung product technicians.

The new initiative will be known as “The Samsung Pathway,” and will integrate two new courses into Centennial’s Electronics Engineering Technician Diploma curriculum. Students will receive a unique certification from Samsung Electronics Canada as an industry recognized qualification, beyond their diploma.

The Samsung Pathway will provide an exclusive framework of knowledge that will directly impact the careers of graduates*, and aligns with recent government initiatives to promote jobs in skilled trades, a recent area of focus for provincial education programming.

Centennial will begin offering the first classes for the new program this September. As part of the partnership, Samsung has created a Branded Digital Services Lab stocked with Samsung home appliances to help bring the practical components of the program to life. As well, each school year, Samsung will update the lab to maintain its technological relevance and to ensure students are learning on the best and most recent technology Samsung has in the Canadian marketplace.

“At Samsung, we hope to inspire Canadians to pursue their passions and reach their full potential,” said Mark Childs, Chief Brand Officer, Samsung Canada.

“This new partnership with Centennial College allows us to engage with tech savvy students, who will get closer to our brand as we help foster a next generation of Samsung experts.”

The Samsung Tech Institute will offer select graduates co-op and apprenticeship opportunities along with their newfound expertise. In addition, three $1,000 Samsung Scholarships will also be offered to top students for achievements in academics.

“Partnering with an innovative technology company like Samsung is a logical progression of the real-world learning opportunities we provide our students,” said Ann Buller, President and CEO, Centennial College.

“Samsung products are used and enjoyed in millions of Canadian homes, and the additional training will serve as a tremendous asset to Centennial graduates moving forward in their careers.”

Established in 1966, Centennial College is one of Toronto’s leading technology colleges. The Electronics Engineering Technician Diploma emphasises a focus on digital electronic communications, medical equipment, microcontrollers, mobile applications, computers, and transceivers.

Current technicians will have the opportunity to study within the program, developing their industry knowledge and increasing their career potential.
