Aaron Sask

Carpentry Alumnus

When I graduated high school, I wasn't sure what I wanted to do. My natural abilities became apparent when I started carpentry at KPU. It’s an ideal place to learn and develop your skills. There are huge workshops, all the tools you need, ample space to work, and the instructors are highly knowledgeable. Completing your certification makes you an extremely valuable employee and enables you to take on a leadership role on the job site. I now have my Red Seal, the national standard of excellence in the skilled trades. The knowledge I gained at KPU has given me the opportunity to mentor others and take on apprentices working under me.
