2017 Penticton Residential Construction/Carpenter Foundation Program  

August 15, 2017 -  Industry involvement and support leads to great student training experience!

Thanks to SK Form and Finishing Inc.for taking our Penticton Residential Construction/Carpenter Foundation students onto two of their active work sites. This allowed students, over the course of a couple of days, to learn what is involved in major concrete pours through hands on participation, industry guidance and the operation of various tools, equipment and machinery. We could not have offered these kind of experiences without our industry partners and they are invaluable to our students.    

Thanks also to Mark's for rushing in enough pairs of concrete boots to meet the students' needs in order for them to take advantage of this unique training opportunity.
