  vary from a number of weeks to several months.

  Campus, Halifax. Among the co-op education programs offered
  are: electronic engineering technician, drafting
  -architectural, electro/mechanical technician, hospitality
  services, hotel and restaurant management, hospitality and
  food services and earth resources technician (water).
  As a result of a recent federal-provincial program, small to
  medium-sized businesses and companies who employ college
  co-op students are eligible to receive a rebate on wages
  paid students. The program is designed to secure meaningful
  training for co-op students.
