This program is a comprehensive skills-based, practical training program that consists of eight courses that support individual skills in the following areas:
• Painting, Drywall Repairs, and Installation
• Door and Window Repairs, and Installation
• Smart Home Technology Installation
• Molding and Trim Repair, and Installation
• Hanging and Mounting
• Basic Electrics
• Basic Plumbing
• Furniture Assembly and Repair
Each course has its own certificate program.
After our students have received classroom instruction, they will then be given the opportunity to use their skills in a practical environment, out in the field alongside a Mendbnb Mender. The instructors will reinforce the theoretical learning using examples and demonstrations, with students able to practice these newly-learnt skills. Realistic jobsite settings are created to allow our students to spend time developing and mastering these skills in a supervised environment. Our students will be given a variety of tasks and required to demonstrate them successfully.
Prospective students are required to pay a $50.00 application fee in addition to the tuition fee of $400.00 for each course. The total cost for the full Residential Handyman program is $3,200.00. Students completing all eight courses who then wish to join the Mendbnb Menders team, will receive a reimbursement of 50% of the program tuition.
Please note, certification does not qualify the student to work as a registered or licensed contractor.
