Metalwork focused Trades Awareness Skills and Knowledge (TASK) dual credit course is a full-time semester cohort class that will take place from September to end of January. Students will take trades focused courses at both EMCS and Camosun College - Interurban Campus. At EMCS, instruction will focus on metal fabrication and welding in both a shop and classroom setting. While at Camosun College, students will sample a number of trades courses which could include sheet metal, heavy duty mechanics and plumbing. Additionally, all students will be required to participate in a trade-focused work experience program at a local business or company. Work experience has many benefits including on-the-job training and mentorship, employability skills, and possible future employment opportunities. Safety will be a primary focus at all education and work sites. Students will earn up to 16 credits to put towards high school graduation and 8 additional credits at Camosun College.
