Trades, Manufacturing & Transportation (TMT)

Construction: Introductory/Intermediate/Advanced

Prerequisite: Intro/Inter (in sequence)

Students learn basic safety, skills, and techniques of the construction industry while completing hands-on project work in an industrial environment guided by a Red Seal Cabinetmaking teacher. Introductory construction does not require any previous woodworking experience and is a great starting point for anyone interested in construction-related trades or as a hobby. Through building multiple small pieces of furniture, students will integrate wood theory, math, drafting, and plan-reading skills on a daily basis. In courses following the introductory level, students will gain further building experience using advanced joinery methods, such as dominos, rabbets, dado, dovetails, and box joints. In the advanced course, students will be given the opportunity to personalize, design, and customize their project work in a way that highlights their individual interests.
