Due to increasing employment opportunities for skilled trades craftsmen, carpentry continues to be a popular career choice. The Carpentry program is designed to assist students in developing the knowledge, attitudes and skills required of carpenters engaged in residential and industrial construction. First-year students develop skills in safety, tool use, material selection and construction techniques. These students demonstrate their skills in lab through competency tests and hands-on construction of a variety of projects. Second-year students apply their knowledge and skills by building a house that meets all required standards and codes. Each house is custom built to customer specifications. Upon successful completion of this program, students will have many employment opportunities.
