|Description:||This apprenticeship program fulfills the in-class requirements for the General Carpenter apprenticeship program and prepares apprentices to work as skilled carpenters in the construction industry.
Carpenters are required to perform a variety of specialized jobs, including rough carpentry, form building, framing, fine finishing and maintenance work. In addition to these skills, a carpenter needs to have a basic understanding of standard building procedures, building regulations and properties of materials. Due to the construction industry involving the combined efforts of a number of different trades, carpenters must be familiar with the relationship of carpentry work to that of other journeymen.
