Here at Lennox Pave-All we're are very passionate about landscape construction and we strongly believe that all industries should be practiced with the highest standard. In addition, it is very important to us that homeowners are educated about this industry and are educated enough to recognize poor practices. It is our goal to set the new standard in this industry, which is why we are offering a training course held at York University, with paid Co-op, that will educate newcomers or those already in the industry about landscape construction. Students attending this course will gain a thorough understanding of this industry which will pay in dividends. This course is most beneficial for newcomers in this industry that do not want to start from the bottom of the pay scale or for those that are already in the industry seeking to expand their knowledge and attain skills to either run multiple sites or start their own company.

This course is lectured based with some reading material, and all lectures are interactive, to ensure that students fully grasp the material. Students will be evaluated with 2 tests and an exam.

Note, a minimum grade of 78% is required for eligibility of paid Co-op.

There are 10 units in the course, which are as follows:
1) Evaluating Land
2) Excavation and Compaction
3) Bedding
4) Laying & Cutting
5) Sand, Compaction & Seal
6) Understanding Types of Surfaces
7) Walls, Steps & Special Structures
8) Sales, Estimating & Project Coordination
9) Design & Design Factors
10) Benefits of Landscaping

All of the units covered in this course will be taught in depth and thoroughly; some topics include: understanding soil types and stabilization, freeze and thaw cycles, basic physics of loads, how placement of homes affect design, rhetoric communication, importance of excavation.. etc.

Pre-requisites
Students must have a High School college Math and Science course with a minimum grade of 65%

High School Transcript will be requested.

Payment:
Considering that this will be the first year that this course is launched, we are only valuing the course at $1,000 which is a fraction of what post secondary schools charge.

An initial payment of $500, paid through paypal, must be received one week before class.
Once first Test is completed an outstanding balance of $500 is due (paid through paypal).

If the student decides to drop the course before the first test then student is eligible for a full refund. However, If student decides to drop after first test then the student is no longer eligible for refund of the initial payment.

This course is not affiliated with York University and the course will only be held at York.

Classes Start Feb 20, 2017

Aid will be offered to students in not only finding a placement but finding a job as well.

After completion of the course and co-op students will be educated enough to become a:
- foreman
- salesman
- supervisor
- installer
