From Provincials to Nationals, SAIT was the most decorated Alberta post-secondary institution at the Skills Canada competitions.

We can't possibly add up the number of hours our students trained, practiced and prepped for the Provincial and Nationals Skills Canada Competitions.  

But we can beam with pride and talk about how their work paid off #HereAtSAIT.
