JSASD Building Maintenance and CAD Programs

Building Trade Maintenance
This program is designed to introduce students to the skills necessary for success in a career in building maintenance. Students will be instructed in, and exposed to, building maintenance and trades skills at the basic, intermediate and advanced levels, based on their needs and abilities.
These skills will include:
• basic safety (which includes personal protective equipment, performance safety, and what to do if an accident occurs);
• communication and human relations skills; and
• hands-on experiences (which provide exposure and practice in each of the building maintenance areas).

9782 Intro to Building Maintenance
(Gr 9) (.50 credits)
