Construction Technology introduces students to carpentry, cabinetmaking and furniture making. Students begin at a basic level of competence, and improve their techniques over the course of the program. They develop knowledge and skills related to the building and manufacturing trades that will help them expand their general woodworking abilities and/or continue in an apprenticeship program.
Although this is a hands-on course, in order to receive credit, students will be responsible for completing all relevant theory material before progressing to the lab. Some projects will fulfill multiple credit requirements. Students are responsible for providing their own materials if they opt to complete larger projects outside the scope of those planned for the course.
All Construction Technology courses are worth at least five credits. If there is sufficient enrolment, Construction Technology 20 students will have the option of registering for a full year class to earn six or more credits by completing additional modules.
