The SD38 Youth Train in Trades Industrial Mechanic (Millwright) Program provides a unique opportunity for students to get a head start in this career.  This program is based at Kwantlen Polytechnic University (KPU).  Industrial mechanics dismantle, move, install, and repair heavy machinery & equipment.  They are required to know how to do the layout and set-up required to install the heavy equipment that industry relies on.  This is a challenging and technical field.  Upon successful completion of this program, along with the required work experience, students will receive the first of four levels towards their Red Seal certification.
