About the Program

This unique co-operative advanced diploma program is delivered at one of the most advanced woodworking training facilities in North America. During the first year of the program, with the first term being common with the Woodworking Technician program, students are provided with theoretical and practical training related to the technology and skills involved in the efficient and quality-conscious manufacture of furniture, cabinets and architectural millwork. The co-op delivery mode affords students the opportunity to relate in-school training with real industrial experience. The final year of the program focuses on work measurement, plant layout/support systems, materials handling, quality control, cost estimating, manufacturing management techniques, computer integrated manufacturing concepts, computer-aided drafting, and NC program processing.

Program Advisory Committees

The College appoints Program Advisory Committee members for diploma, degree, certificate and apprenticeship programs. Committees are composed of employers, practitioners and recent program graduates. College representatives (students, faculty, and administrators) are resource persons. Each committee advises the Board on the development of new programs, the monitoring of existing programs and community acceptance of programs.

For a list of the current members, please visit our Program Advisory Committees.
