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

2018 Take your kid to work day

No better place for 'take your kid to work' day than a technology playground!

Halton District School Board students Liam and Adam enjoyed a tour of the Skilled Trades Centre and the Centre for Advanced Manufacturing and Design Technologies where they got to learn about wet jet printers, millwright functions, plumbing and electrical, 3D printing and robotics.

Special thanks to Daniel Liao, Sarmad Sadik and Roman Motyka for touring around the grade 9 students.

Brampton Centennial visits STC 2018

This amazing group of Specialist High Skills Major students from Brampton Centennial, visited Sheridan's Electrical shop on October 24th. From from 9 am – 12 pm, students completed a light switch exercise and toured the campus with Dan Hammond, the Electrical Programs Program Coordinator. Thanks to everyone who participated and shared in the fun. We always love showing off our state-of-the-art facilities!

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.

Pedal-powered water purification system

In October 2017, Craig Brazil, professor and coordinator of Sheridan’s Industrial Mechanical Millwright (IMM) program, along with Simon Heathcote, Lab Manager in the Faculty of Applied Science and Technology (FAST), had a leading role at Worldskills Abu Dhabi, with Craig serving as the IMM Competition Manager.

One initiative that came out of World Skills Abu Dhabi 2017 was the sustainable Test Project, which aimed to increase access to clean water. To continue this work, we’re proud to announce that Sheridan College has partnered with DHL Trade Fairs and Events GmbH to donate six pedal powered water pump and purification bikes to UNIDO.
