SKILLED TRADES OF CONSTRUCTION ADVANTAGE
Students enrolled in the Skilled Trades of Construction (STOC) program will have the opportunity to earn two credits, Practical and Applied Arts 30 and Trades Math and Communication 30. The program is offered afternoons during the second semester.
Students will learn practical and theoretical knowledge in seven different construction sub trades including: electrical, framing, site surveying, interior finishing, exterior finishing, concrete forming and finishing, and, if time allows, plumbing. The course involves a combination of theory, practical labs and on-site construction. The final class project will involve constructing and finishing a garage on site.
STOC is open to male and female students in grades 11 or 12. Students can be registered in another Saskatoon Public Schools collegiate and attend morning classes at their home school.
EQUIPMENT REQUIREMENTS AND COST
Students will be supplied with their own hard hats and safety glasses. Participants will need to supply their own steel-toed boots. There is no fee for this program.
Potential STOC participants need to contact Walter Murray’s Student Services office to register for the course.
