This program starts you off with academic upgrading, then carpentry trades training – both theory and practical, and concludes with on-the-job technical training. All students will receive support in job placements which may be used for apprenticeship hours. Students will each participate in an 8-week, 200-hour, trade-appropriate work placement. Upon completion, you will graduate with a certificate which will allow credits towards apprenticeship training in the future.
Please visit the College Preparation website for the full list of courses available to take through our academic upgrading.
Pre-Apprenticeship Carpentry prepares students for direct entry into employment and/or further studies.
