Transportation Trades 11 - automotive training

Mike Morrison - BEC's skilled trades instuctor

Students in some Nova Scotia High Schools are going to get more and more exposure to courses in the skilled trades.

It's part of the province's "Kids and Learning First" program.

Today the deputy premier officially launched the brand new "Transportation Trades 11" course
at Breton Education Centre in New Waterford.

The automotive training is the latest course -- it now joins the basic skilled trades course and a full-fledged construction course-- in which students actually learn how to build a small house right there in the school's workshop.

Mike Morrison is BEC's skilled trades instructor. He spoke with CBC reporter Hal Higgins.
