We are proud to be apart of the Asphodel Township, locally based in Hastings, Ontario.
Recently we have reached out to the local schools including Norwood District High School and Campbellford District High School and offered classes to help raise awareness that a career in the trades is a great option after graduation.
We have hosted numerous classes teaching how the Sheet Metal trade works and how the apprenticeship programs works for not just our trade, but others as well.
Students arrive onsite with their safety gear and start out with a tutorial about that days project. See the pictures below of some of the great projects the students have been working on!
Another class we taught was onsite at the Campbellford District High School. Our gas technicians did a demonstration on how to service a furnace and what being a Gas Technician/Fitter entails. The students then were able to do a hands on project by connecting different gas pipe fittings together.
Overall, it has been a great success and we are so happy that the participating schools have been so supportive of our company wanting to raise awareness to the students.
Jumping into the trades after High School is a great way to a rewarding career path!
