ACC, SEL Housing Inc partner to provide hands-on learning to construction students


Assiniboine Community College and SEL Housing Inc have signed a memorandum of understanding that will see them offering hands-on learning opportunities for carpentry, electrical, and plumbing students. Through the partnership, students will have the opportunity to construct a single-family dwelling at the North Hill campus using housing and building plans provided by the housing company. SEL Housing will appraise the students’ labour and make a donation to a fund to support trades at the college. “This initiative will allow students to put their newly acquired skills to practice in a real-world application under the guidance of journeyperson-certified instructors,” said Assiniboine Dean of Trades Kevin Poirier.
