Field Placement Or Capstone Project
After successfully obtaining your Gas Technician 3 license through the TSSA, your learning experience will be complemented by a field placement that begins in October and runs one full day a week for the first and second semesters. This is an opportunity for you to receive actual field experience as well as build a relationship with potential employers.
To participate in the work placement portion of this program you must have a valid Gas Technician 3 license.
If you do not have a valid Gas Technician 3 license, a capstone project will be assigned.
Please note: there are pre-placement requirements for the field placement component of this program. Visit Admission Requirements tab for more information.
Durham College has invested in developing new student work integrated learning opportunities in the School of Skilled Trades, Apprenticeship and Renewable Technology. By enhancing our existing partnerships with organizations such as Habitat for Humanity and the Durham Region Home Builder’s Association, new field placement and co-op opportunities have been created. Several programs will benefit from these partnerships including Gas Technician 2, Building Construction Technician and Carpentry and Renovation Technician.
