PROGRAM DESCRIPTION:

Carpenters are responsible at least in part, for creating just about every building in your community. Homes, schools, court houses and office buildings are built from scratch through the skills and experience of professional carpenters. To be a carpenter is to be a member of one of the oldest and most respected trades in the world. If you enjoy working with tools, like to see your work produce immediately results and if you have a good work ethic, you can build a lifetime career in carpentry. The carpentry program builds lab activities into the program and provides instruction in: use of hand and power tools, selection and use of materials, estimating, blueprint reading, and interpretation of building codes.
