Program description

Want a career where you are in demand and can build a new future for yourself?

In the first part of the program you will get essential safety training (including Working At Heights), gain hands-on skills, learn key concepts, and be able to complete academic upgrading and employment strategies to help ensure your success. Your shop class will teach you essential carpentry skills and will also give you an introduction to cabinetmaking.
