SAIT’s Home Renovation and Improvement courses are designed for those who wish to renovate an existing interior or exterior space, build in an undeveloped area of their home, or fix basic plumbing issues faced by homeowners. Our hands-on interior renovation courses simulate a basement development through sequential course offerings. Learners will discover and practice design, estimation and building techniques which can be immediately applied to their own projects. Courses are offered in SAIT’s state-of-the-art building and design labs at our main campus and taught by industry experts in the fields of architecture and trades.
Courses may be taken individually by anyone who has a home renovation or improvement project they wish to tackle or by those looking to build on their skillset; learners must complete six of the available courses to be awarded a certificate.
For additional information on completing your home renovation projects, please visit the City of Calgary Home Improvements Page.
