The Residential Framing Technician program was developed in response to demand from the residential home building and renovating industry. Through a combination of technical and hands-on training, students will be provided with the necessary skills to build the concrete formwork, construct the “frame” or supporting structure of single and multi-family buildings, enclose the building, and install the windows and doors to the “lock-up” stage.   The trainee will be introduced to the residential construction industry, safe work practices; and provided with the skills necessary to construct residential floors, walls, roofs, and stairs.
