The Kamsack Training Centre delivers Adult Basic Education and high school upgrading classes, along with Essential Skills training. Between 50 and 60 students are enrolled in classes at Kamsack.

Guests at the grand opening were able to tour the 4,200-square-foot facility, which includes three large classrooms, a spacious common area, and office and storage space.
