Skilled Trades


We have moved to Davis Campus and are settling into our new, state-of-the-art building. Come and see us at the Skilled Trades Centre, 'A' wing.

Sheridan’s skilled trades programs provide students with practical skills and knowledge in industrial and/or construction trade sectors. Learning in well-equipped, state-of-the-art labs and workshops provides students the opportunity to apply theory with hands-on projects, making them better prepared to enter today’s fast-paced work force.

Upon graduation students will have learned in industry-standard workshops, developing the skills of their chosen profession. Grads leave Sheridan ready and able to to begin an apprenticeship.


Jake Doan takes Silver at Skills Canada

On June 4th and 5th, Sheridan students from the Faculty of Applied Science and Technology competed in the 2018 Skills Canada competition, in Edmonton, AB. The Silver medal winner in the Industrial Mechanic Millwright (IMM) competition was STC's Jake Doan, who was competing against 9 others from around Canada. Jake is part of Sheridan’s IMM Program.

At this year’s competition, Jake completed a total of 4 challenges--each lasting 3 hours over a 2-day period. The challenges included turning on a lathe, building a sequential cascading circuit with safety interlocks, stainless steel tube bending with pressure tests up to 2000 psi, and laser shaft alignment. Jake will now move on to compete in a 4-day trial against the 3rd place competitor to represent Canada at the 2019 WorldSkills competition in Kazan, Russia 2019.

Congratulations Jake. We'll be cheering you on!

2018 First Robotics Canada - Ontario District Championships STC

Sheridan's School of Skilled Trades and Apprenticeship is proud to have been a sponsor at this year's First Robotics Canada - Ontario District Championships, held at Mississauga's Hershey Centre between April 12th and 14th.

The Sheridan Robot Repair Shop, staffed by the school's technologists and equipped with precision metal cutting equipment, provided emergency fabrication of parts that allowed many of the teams' robots to be fixed up and put back into the competition with minimal downtime. For the second year in a row, Sheridan provided special support to Team 1360 Orbit Robotics of Oakville, who placed 7th of 130 teams in Ontario.

Congratulations to all involved!

Sheridan's First Ever Skilled Trades Competition

Thanks to the significant efforts of STC staff, faculty and students, Sheridan’s first ever Skilled Trades Competition was a resounding success, with a palpable energy and excitement filling the Skilled Trades Centre.

Serving as a precursor to the annual Skills Ontario competition, the March 28th Skilled Trades Competition was Sheridan’s first experience delivering an in-house, qualifier-style skills competition. Students competed in the Industrial Mechanic Millwright, Precision Machining, Plumbing, Electrical and Welding categories. The competition provided an opportunity for students to showcase their mastery and compete against peers to earn the chance to participate at Skills Ontario.

In Skills Ontario fashion, winners of the Sheridan Skilled Trades Competition were awarded Gold, Silver or Bronze medals made by Sheridan’s skilled trades faculty, and many industry partners contributed gifts for competition winners. Congratulations to all the participants and winners of our first Skilled Trades Competition.
