Objectifs du programme

The program of study Tinsmithing prepares students for the profession of tinsmith.

Tinsmiths work on construction sites in the following sectors: institutional and commercial, industrial, residential, civil engineering and roads. However, work in the institutional and commercial sector accounts for the largest number of workers.

As part of their duties, tinsmiths cut, shape, assemble and weld different types of tinsmithing products. They install prefabricated metal objects, wall cladding, heritage roofs and modern roofing, as well as air treatment, heat recovery and exhaust systems. They are also responsible for fabricating parts manufactured mainly from sheet metal, profiles, and similar materials.

Work is usually carried out in teams in accordance with the plans, specifications and standards in force. Tinsmiths use bench tools, access equipment, handling and hoisting equipment, as well as cutting, shaping, and welding equipment to perform their duties. They also use measuring and tracing instruments to draw sketches and patterns for parts.

People practicing this profession must have good manual dexterity and physical stamina. They must be able to work at heights. Adherence to health and safety regulations and measures is prevalent and integral to the trade.

Préalables fonctionnels

A person who has reached the age of 18 can be admitted to a program of study leading to a Diploma of vocational studies (DVS) based on functional prerequisites. These prerequisites, in place for those aged at least 18 years at the start date declared for the vocational training program, are: successful completion of the general development test (GDT) and obtaining and passing the tests relative to the specific prerequisites in the language of instruction and mathematics, if applicable.

This table indicates the new course codes for common core basic education (CCBE) and diversified basic education (DBE) required for the specific prerequisites in language of instruction and mathematics for the targeted program of study. In the cases where the new course codes for the CCBE and the DBE are in progressive implementation, the old codes are indicated in parenthesis and are still valid. The equivalent course codes in basic education in the youth sector are also indicated in the table. When a DVS does not require any specific prerequisites in language of instruction or in mathematics, a (-) will be displayed in the appropriate field. Please note that the functional prerequisites do not apply to attestation of vocational specialty (AVS) programs.
