I had a fantastic experience at the York Construction Academy. Their comprehensive training program provided me with a solid foundation in construction basics. The instructors were knowledgeable, patient, and always willing to help. The hands-on learning approach was invaluable, and I felt well-prepared to enter the construction industry after completing the course. I highly recommend York Construction Academy to anyone looking to learn the essentials of construction. Specifically thanks to Nardo, Milan and B.

I was a student at york construction academy, without any construction experience, after three months, I acquired alot of knowledge on construction (drywall, tiling, painting, framing, foundation e.t.c.). The instructor are good in teaching you what you need to know and prepare you for the real world.

Taking this course was one of the best decisions I made for the year. I grew in skill, confidence, and knowledge. B, Nardo, and Steve are so impressive and good at their jobs that I found myself becoming a better person--more hardworking, precise, open, determined. I'm not exaggerating when I say the York Construction Academy course will change your life. The teaching and administrative staff (Nardo, B, Steve, Bora) are EXCELLENT! If you have any questions about your own project, the industry, or the task, they will help you. Their standards are high. I saw my skills improve each day. No time wasted. In three months, you learn everything you need to know. I've used these skills in my own house afterward. To get the most out of the course, you have to commit, trust the teachers, do the work. The classes had people from all over the world, at all stages of life. The tuition is reasonable for the value you're getting. If you're on the fence, even if you're an amateur, don't hesitate. Do it. Your life will change, if you're serious.

Amazing course. Both the theory (with Nardo) and the practical with B and Milan was fantastic!!Virtual: Nardo is very patient and always provides a great deal of knowledge from his experiences. You learn each of the stages of building a home, and learn some background about condos.Practical: B and Milan are an absolute blast to learn from. They try to create the environment of you working on a job site so you are job ready when you graduate. They help you with better techniques and provide you with insight on how to use material best/efficiently.My only advice would be to give your best in both the virtual and practical because you get what you put in. The instructors are a great resource but ultimately comes down to you if you want to learn the right way!

This is an amazing course!! This school is the only school that allows you to take part time classes. During this time, I learned the theory and terminology of the construction industry. Most importantly, I gained the hands on experience with working with tools and learning how to build a house. All the teachers are amazing as they explain everything thoroughly and are helpful in assisting and guiding you to do things correctly.

The Home Reno and Construction program is an excellent technical program for those seeking a job in the booming construction industry. This program covers all the essential topics such as home foundations and framing, flooring, drywall, and painting in a 12 week time frame and provides hands - on training which is essential in mastering any application and building to the Canadian standards/ codes. Outside of the core topics, basics are also taught on electrical work and plumbing, making the curriculum well-rounded. Overall, lectures brought a wealth of knowledge and kept classes engaging and concise. I’d highly recommend this program to anyone who is seeking to transition to the construction industry.

I recently completed the part time construction course at York Construction Academy and have to say it was a wonderful experience. All the teachers were very knowledgable as well as supportive. Even thought the first half was theory on line, Nardo the instructor was able to make it very interesting, full of excellent tips and fun. Steve and B were both great with the practical part in the second half. Being a real estate agent I initially signed up so I could better advise my clients in the buying and selling of homes but I ended up gaining the confidence to build my own garage which I would have never have dreamed of taking on. You get what you put in so if you’re willing to learn and get a little dirty you won’t be disappointed. You will also make new friends in the process. Since I’ve finished Vlad the owner of the school continues to be helpful with advice and recommendations.

I went into York Construction Academy without any construction background, but leaving YCA pretty confident with my new set of skills. The school makes you feel welcome regardless of your skill level. Our theoretical instructor, Nardo, was awesome at teaching. Probably one of the best instructors I've ever had. Everything was delivered smoothly. He made sure everyone understood the lessons, went into the smallest details, and answered all of our questions. Steve, and B were great practical instructors that guided us throughout the whole process of building a small house inside the school's facility. The school could also help with job placement if you need one. Kudos to Vlad and the team.

Such a professional people. Knowledgeable and skillful. Most importantly, they teach in practical ways. You get to build a whole house in practical classes. Also they will find you jobs if you are interested. They know the right people. Good way to get in the construction game. Comparing to all the materials and tools you use during the classes, it is very reasonably priced. Nardo, Steve, queen B they all are amazing and very passionate people. And Vlad, The boss! Great guys.
