Skilled Trades

Welcome

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.

Highlights

2019 Sheridan Skills Competition

We're so excited for our second annual, expanded Sheridan Skills competition on March 4th. Previously a Skilled Trades event, this year we'll be introducing competitions in Applied Computing, Mechanical and Electrical Engineering Technology and Business. Taking place at Davis Campus we will enjoy a day of witnessing and celebrating the accomplishments of our student competitors.

A full day event, participants will compete in discipline-specific competitions putting their skills and knowledge to the test. With competitions ranging from IT Network Systems Administration to Electrical and plumbing, to Automation & Control, Machining and Mechatronics, and IT Office Software Applications the day will be filled with camaraderie, excitement and application of concepts learned.


Women in Trades and Anna Strachan in Media Planet - Dec 2018

Sheridan’s very own Anna Strachan, Professor and Precision Manufacturing Coordinator in the School of Skilled Trades and Apprenticeship, was featured in the December 2018 issue of Women in Trades. Anna’s impressive career in the trades started at Sheridan where her interest for creating things was born, and where she has returned to share her ongoing passion with her students.

The Media Planet feature highlights Anna’s observations on the rising number of women working in the trades as well as Sheridan’s commitment to providing the opportunity for women to learn a variety of trades careers at the Skilled Trades Centre at Davis campus in Brampton, ON.

Thanks Anna, for representing Sheridan, the School of Skilled Trades and Apprenticeships and the amazing work done by women in trades!

Craig Brazil at the Taiwan Skills Competition 2018

Professor Craig Brazil, from the School of Skilled Trades & Apprenticeship, recently returned from an amazing educational and cultural experience in Taichung, Taiwan. The Taiwanese Government and Worldskills Taiwan invited Craig to join 12 other Skill Competition Managers and Chief Experts in evaluating practices and procedures, and judging methods in a variety of Skilled Trade and Vocational competitions.

Craig was selected because of his significant role as the Skills Competition Manager for the Industrial Mechanic Millwright (IMM) competition at Worldskills Abu Dhabi last year. His experience in Taiwan gave him a unique perspective to explore how things are done. Craig said his experience abroad will enhance what he brings to the classroom, and to his students, this year.

Craig's expertise in IMM makes him a sought after resource for skills competitions. He'll be heading to Kazan, Russia in 2019 to enjoy another year of being a Skills Competition Manager.
