Dean's Message

Saskatchewan is an enviable place to be—especially if you’re considering a career in construction. Construction is one of the province’s key economic drivers and forecasts show that demand for skilled workers in the field will remain strong.

Our School of Construction offers a diversity of programs that can give you the credentials to launch or redirect your career. We offer certificates, technology diplomas and apprenticeship training. Our relationships with employers and their participation on our advisory committees make certain that your program provides the skills and educational experiences you need to succeed.

As the dean of the School of Construction, I can assure you that whether you choose a diploma, certificate or apprenticeship program, Saskatchewan Polytechnic is committed to providing you with practical skills that will let you thrive in today’s economy.



John Erickson joined Saskatchewan Polytechnic in 1985 as an instructor. He has held several positions within the organization and is currently Acting Dean for the Schools of Construction and Transportation. John holds his journeyperson ticket in the Electronic Technician trade and also has an Adult Ed Vocational Education certificate.
