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:
- Mechanical (Automotive, Small Engine and Heavy Duty)
The Intro to Trades model allows for complete flexibility for fields trips, instructional activities, etc.
