Intro to Trades


School District No. 52 Prince Rupert is pleased to offer Intro to Trades during the last trimester of the school year. The Intro to Trades  program is a partnership between the School District No. 52 Prince Rupert and Coast Mountain College in which a group of students experience a sampling of trades while continuing their academic studies. Intro to Trades enables students to have a better understanding of possible career pathways in trades.

The Time in the Shop

The students are under the direction of the college instructor for the full  day. There are regularly scheduled breaks and lunch, all at the discretion of the instructor and the students. The students are engaged in classroom learning and hands on projects within each area of trades instruction.

The final list has yet to be confirmed, but here are potential trades that can be offered in the program:

  • Carpentry
  • Electrical
  • Mechanical (Automotive, Small Engine and Heavy Duty)
  • Plumbing
  • Welding


The Intro to Trades model allows for complete flexibility for fields trips, instructional activities, etc.
