Free Hands-On, One-on-One Learning

If you’re interested in working in a trade but don’t have the skills or experience to get a job as an apprentice, you can apply. We’re offering free 26-week pre-apprenticeship training, with two intakes per year: January and July.

Computer-Aided Design (CAD)

Included in your training, you’ll also learn Computer-Aided Design (CAD) software. With these skills, you’ll be able to design and create three-dimensional (3D) models so you can learn all aspects of residential construction in a digital environment.

Design & Build Modular Homes

As part of the curriculum, our students will build 1,100 square foot bungalows to be moved to available land and sold as affordable housing. A truly hands-on experience. Want to be part of this exciting venture?
