Description
The Carpentry program provides you with a knowledge of woodworking machines, blueprint reading and sketching, safe working practices and a familiarity with the materials and procedures needed to enter related occupations.  

You will learn the safe and proper use of hand and power tools and woodworking machines. You will develop practical skills in framing, roofing, and surveying and have some exposure to concrete form construction.

Prior to starting the program, you will be invited to attend a program overview information session. You will also be invited to participate in a math and reading skills diagnostic testing session that will advise you of your program readiness.
