Pre-Apprenticeship Carpentry


Do you want to become a licensed carpenter and earn credits towards your high school diploma?

This tuition-free program is for you. In 18 weeks you will receive in-school shop training and gain workplace experience performing carpentry projects for TDSB schools. If you achieve 70% or better with excellent attendance you will be accepted to register with the College of Carpenters and Allied Trades (CCAT) and be able to join Local 27 as an apprentice.  The 540 hours of training at SCAS counts towards the apprenticeship.

This program has been postponed.  The program is changing location and the new location, as well as the orientation date, will be announced when it has been confirmed.  Please continue to check this website as information will be posted as soon as it is available.
