Program Information

School:British Columbia Institute of Technology
Faculty:School of Construction & the Environment
Field of Study:Cabinetmaking and Millwork/Millwright
Description:Joiners can do more than build cabinets. Joiners may work in a wide variety of specialties such as cabinetmaking, architectural woodwork (millwork), furniture making, boat interiors and store fixture manufacturing. The type of work in each of the areas varies. In some shops joiners will be required to read blueprints and visualize the item to be built, make detailed drawings and cutting lists for the item, machine all the components, assemble and then apply a finish. In other shops, the individual may specialize in one or more of these areas.

Training prepares students for entry-level employment in the joinery trade. Basic theory and related information along with hands-on shop practice enable students to become competent in basic interior woodworking tasks. Upon successful completion of the program, students will receive credit for level one apprenticeship technical training and credit of 475 work-based hours towards their time in trade. Students can complete their trades qualification by seeking employment as an apprentice and then registering for additional Apprenticeship Training.
