Intro to Home Renovation
Our Intro to Home Renovation Program was designed to meet the current need for skilled trades workers in Ontario’s booming construction industry. Students will learn the basics of Framing, Drywall, Taping, Footings, Vapor Barrier, Insulation, rough-in Electrical, rough-in Plumbing, and all relevant general construction work.
Trainees will be taught how to use the tools and apply the proper techniques required to be successful in a variety of general construction-related jobs. Graduates of this program will leave with all the relevant safety certifications, and receive the fundamental practical hands-on training in a simulated on-the-job setting.
This program is followed by an 8 week paid placement.
