Building Trades

​Program Description

The Building Trades program is an eight credit Cooperative Vocational Education (CVE) program. Students (minimum 16 years old) spend one day per week in class learning the theory essential to building construction and four days per week receiving hands-on instruction in a typical employment situation. Students may experience building construction trades in carpentry, concrete, bricklaying, renovating, heating, plumbing, painting, cabinet-making and other areas that will prepare them for employment, apprenticeship or further education.

Students are responsible for their own transportation to and from the worksites.

Students begin by learning conventions and practices of the workplace, developing job search techniques and pre-employment skills, health and safety rules and regulations, the use of hand and power tools and the use of construction equipment and new construction technology.
