Durham, Blue Door partner on pilot carpentry training program


Durham College has announced a partnership with Blue Door–an emergency housing provider in the York Region–to deliver the Blue Door Construct carpentry training program. This three-week training program will provide participants with hands-on learning opportunities in construction. By the time they graduate, learners will have earned Health & Safety Training, First Aid & CPR, and Working at Heights training certificates. “The certifications and training gained will set up our participants to obtain meaningful job opportunities that will start building their career in the trades,” said Construct Director of Social Enterprise Rudi Genovese. “By connecting participants with Durham College, Construct is able to support them in building strong relationships and career paths in their community.”
