Pre Apprenticeship Carpentry

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.
