In collaboration with the educational services of the Beauce-Etchemin School Services Center, the Builders Training Center today opened the doors of its facility to present the workshops of the profiles associated with the Certificate of Preparatory Training for Employment (CFPT) and a certificate in a semi-skilled trade (CFMS).

During this visit, current students and their teachers welcomed visitors to present internships and their achievements. It was also an opportunity to provide information on the tasks and skills associated with the targeted semi-skilled trade.

This day is always very important to us. It allows our students to present the projects they have been working on for a year. We have young people whose eyes are filled with pride and who are happy to show the achievement of their work and their perseverance. said the deputy director of the Builders training center, Julie Hébert.

This is intended for young people aged 14 to 17 who want to learn a trade in parallel. The facilities are very complete and allow all participants to develop professional skills. They work on concrete projects and respond to customer questions.

The building of the Bâtisseurs de Saint-Joseph training center welcomes construction, garage and lab artistic profiles, while the kitchen profile is offered in collaboration with Village Aventuria in Saint-Jules.

The internship profiles are proof that different training paths are possible to maintain the motivation of our young people on their journey.
