Tiny Home RV

 

Making the most of every square foot, these functional Tiny Homes prove that bigger is not always better. It's a trend that's growing in popularity: houses are shrinking due to environmental and cost factors. Homeowners keen on downsizing have begun learning how to pack essential functionality into less square footage, and are doing so with style!

It combines practical hands-on construction training with essential theory instruction. Students graduate with a well-rounded, relevant skill set, experience and safety certifications for an entry level position in the construction industry.

We strongly encourage all interested applicants to apply as the Centre for Skills Development strives to create a diverse environment in which provides equal opportunity that prohibits any form of discrimination.
