Building Construction Internship Program
The Building Construction Internship Program, BCIP, offers students authentic site experience in completing a new construction project.
In teaming up with our community partners, BCIP students can work in all the essential construction trades which contribute to the building of a house.
The BCIP is synonymous with the expanded opportunities of the Specialist High Skills Major in construction. Our credit packages allow students to obtain the two construction major credits, the other required credits, and coop credits included in the bundle of ten credits needed to receive the red seal.
Students in BCIP also receive all seven certifications (5 compulsory and 2 elective) required for the construction SHSM.

The BCIP program can help with students from all pathways. Workplace students can earn actual job
skills, construction knowledge and safety training employers are looking for. Apprenticeship bound
students can gain the necessary knowledge and skills to go on to the Ontario Youth Apprenticeship
Program and Phase One of their training. The BCIP is ideal for students who are considering postsecondary studies (college and/or university) in architecture, engineering, and construction
management or building inspection.
