BU202
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: S. Pats 1

This course leads to tertiary courses in the Building and Construction area for
apprentice training. Students work collaboratively on a project such as fence
building or a non­consent building. They also produce one or two take home
items such as a children’s picnic table or outdoor chair. They learn about
workshop safety, tool and equipment use and how to order materials. Safety
reasons mean that numbers must be restricted in the workshop to 20.
Classes are held 4 times a week at St Patrick's College.


Equipment/Stationery

Costs to this course are covered by STAR funding.
