The Construction Carpentry Techniques program is a one-year Ontario College Certificate program. It is designed to provide the learner with the skills necessary to enter the residential construction and renovation sector while improving his/her essential employability skills. The student will be trained to use hand and power tools accurately and safely to do a wide variety of carpentry tasks. All layout, framing, roof construction, stairs and foundations will be taken in theory and with hands-on training. Energy efficiencies and sustainable construction methods are a growing concern in residential construction and are dealt with in detail. The student will also learn safety procedures on the job, and how to calculate the amount of material and labour needed for building or renovating a house. Successful completion of this certificate program will prepare the graduate to challenge Level 1 of the in-school component of the carpentry apprenticeship.
