This course has a required work placement component of 25 hours. The work placement must be coordinated through a Career Work Exploration (CWEX) teacher (ask your principal if you do not know if you have a CWEX teacher available). The work placement component provides the student with hands-on experience in the carpentry and construction industry. Learners are responsible for any necessary workplace attire/materials (ex. work boots, tools, etc).
The 75-hour theory component of Construction and Carpentry 10 introduces learners to wood and various other building materials. Learners will cover the safe use and identification of various hand tools and power tools.
For Practical and Applied Arts courses with a work placement, additional fees and scheduled site visits may be required. We encourage all learners, parents, mentors and, where appropriate, school-based administrators to familiarize themselves with our work placement policies.
