“In the General Carpenter Apprentice program, I learned both hands-on, practical skills and theoretical aspects of the trade. It was an easy transition from classroom to shop as we applied the theories learned in the class to the projects completed in the shop. Taught by trade experienced instructors, I completed my program and was prepared to work, becoming a licensed Red Seal Carpenter employed by a prominent construction company."

Scott Culliton, Red Seal Carpenter, General Carpenter Apprentice


“The Level One Electrical Apprenticeship program really expanded my knowledge and understanding of the trade, while at the same time, receiving extensive, hands-on practical training. This program has opened many doors for me, including residential and commercial work that I hadn’t considered previously.”

Chelsea Young, Apprentice Level One Electrical Apprentice


“The Sheet Metal Worker apprenticeship program teaches the properties of the metals we work with, as well as the proper procedures of working with metals. I experienced a good mix of both hands-on shop time and in-class theory that has helped me become a better apprentice. I am more confident in the quality of the fittings I produce and look forward to returning for the next level of the program.”
