Default Trade School Pics

Thought I'd post some pictures of what goes on in trade school in these parts.
Son #1 attended the winter intermediate sheet metal program at George Brown College in Toronto.
This represents most of the shop work involved in the 8 week course.
Other studies include pattern drafting, blueprint reading, roofing, welding, math, and SMACNA standards.
If anyone needs sheet metal info, We have a binder about 4 inches thick.

Thanks guys, I'll pass along the compliments.
He got his results yesterday.
I'm not sure how they grade things these days, but he scored 3.77 out of 4, which is good enough for "honors".
Things sure have changed around the shop.
I just stay out of the way.

Default Update

Son #1 has a seat at the advanced sheet metal program at Algonquin College in Ottawa for 8 weeks in March and April.
This is it.
After this he can take the red seal exam.
He doesn't participate in discussion forums, but he has learned a lot browsing through these pages.
So, thanks are due to Bud and everyone here for making this a dream come true.
Thanks also to Son #2 who has helped us for the last 14 months while I dealt with some serious health issues.
From now on I'm the helper.
