In Demand Trades

top 10 trades


We’re passionate about educating the students of Simcoe Muskoka Catholic about rewarding careers in the trades, right here at home.  For each of the Top 10 In Demand Trades we’ve included an apprenticeship chart, which gives you a visual overview of the apprenticeship training model for that trade, the trade code, red seal designation if applicable, and the number of on the job hours required on top of trade school. 


The *job description gives an introductory look at each trade, while the training standards break down each trade into individual skills and competencies that apprentices will need to know for certification.  Finally, if available, we've included a JobTalks interview as they speak to skilled trades men and women who love their jobs.  


Note: Training standards are subject to change.  Always check for the most current posting.
